This year, we are privileged to be chosen as their Ambassador. Excited as we are, we tried using Chungwoo products in different Korean specialties and other dishes, too, to test the versatility of their products and not be limited to Korean dishes.
In this week’s recipe, we thought of making Tteok-bokki (Stir-fried Korean Rice Cakes) using US potato granules.
It was like making an Italian classic-gnocchi, so we called it Tteok-Gnocchi. We replaced the rice flour to glutinous flour to give it a bouncy and chewy texture like that of rice cakes. Rice and potato are almost similar in taste, texture, and use as main starch for us in East Asia.
So here’s our version and tell us what you think. Comment below for suggestions and feedback.

250g. US Dehydrated Potato Granules
1/2 cup Butter

- Mashed Potato: Bring water, milk, and salt to boil. Add the US Dehydrated Potato granules slowly into the boiling water. Stir it hydrates into a solid mixture, turn off fire. Add in butter. Mix until it forms into a mashed potato.
- Transfer the mashed potato into a ball. Add in the glutinous rice flour and egg. Knead until it forms a smooth, non sticky dough. Set aside for 15 mins.
- While the gnocchi is resting, boil a pot of salted water. In a smooth surface, dust it with flour. Knead the dough and divide into 8 balls. Roll the dough into a long “snakes”, around 3/4 inch diameter. Cut snakes into 1.5 inch dumpling.

- In an oven safe, pour in the warm tteok-gnocchi and sprinkle the mozzarella cheese. Let it sit for a minute to melt it or you can put in an oven at 180°C/350°F for 5 mins. or until the cheese melts. Sprinkle some spring onion or leeks. Serve immediately to make a nice, gooey cheese pull.
