Cheesy Tteok-Gnocchi

Chungwoo Products-03116

Chungwoo is a premier Korean food brand that specializes in Korean sauces and marinades. They just launched here in the Philippines to spread their market worldwide. Currently, they are serving Korea, Vietnam, China, Hong Kong, Japan, and, now, Philippines. (For more info about the brand, visit http://www.chungwoofood.co.kr/)

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.

Enjoy!
