Soy sauce tteokbokki

Soy sauce tteokbokki (간장떡볶이) is a non-spicy and slightly crunchy alternative to the classic recipe.


  • 1 serving cylindrical tteokbokki

  • 1 teaspoon rice malt syrup (or honey)

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon mirin

  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil

  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped spring onion (only the green part)

  • 1 handful sesame seeds


  • Prepare the sauce by mixing the soy sauce, syrup, mirin and toasted sesame oil in a bowl. Keep aside.

  • Boil water in a saucepan and cook the tteokbokki following the instructions on the package. If the dumplings stick together during cooking, add a drop of vegetable oil.

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a pan and pour the drained tteokbookki into it. Sauté for a few minutes to form a crunchy outer crust.

  • Pour in the sauce and caramelise.

  • Pour the tteokbokki into a bowl and garnish with spring onion and sesame seeds.
