If you’re in the mood for some Korean comfort food, then a warm and delicious bowl of simmered cheese Tteokbokki recipe would do just the trick.
Also known as ddukbokki, ddeokbokki, dukbokki or topokki, the Tteokbokki has risen in popularity here in Bali. They are essentially stir-fried cylinder-shaped rice cakes drenched in red sauce and are spicy, slightly sweet, and chewy. They taste great, are both comforting and filling, and slightly spicy, making them a favourite amongst the locals. The key ingredient here is Gochujang, a spicy paste used in Korean cooking, made from red chili peppers, fermented soybeans, rice, and salt.
In Korea, Tteokbokki is available almost everywhere, especially in snack bars and streetside cafes. Here in Bali, frozen versions of this in-demand Korean street food can be found in many supermarkets and Korean marts, but the best and most satisfying ones would be the ones you make yourself, of course. All you need are some high-quality, fresh and premium ingredients from Puri Pangan, the best online grocery supplier in Bali

Cheese Ttebokki Ingredients:
- One packet of frozen Tteokbokki from Puri Pangan
- 2 tbsp gochujang
- One packet of frozen fish cakes
- 350 ml chicken broth
- 1 tsp soy sauce
- 1 tsp sweet topokki sauce
- 1 tsp spicy topokki sauce
- 1 tbsp gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes)
- 2 hard-boiled eggs
- 1 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 4 stalks green onion, or scallions
- shredded mozzarella cheese
Easy Step Of Cheese Tteokbokki Recipe:
- Cut the fish cake sheets into triangles and rinse with cool water.
- Add the chicken broth, gochujang, soy sauce, sweet topokki sauce, spicy topokki sauce, and gochugaru to a pan on medium-high heat. Bring it to a boil, then add the rice cakes or tteokbokki .
- Remember to keep stirring so the rice cakes do not stick to the bottom of the pan and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened (about 4 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat and add the boiled eggs, fish cakes, sesame seeds, sesame oil and green onions.
- Make sure there is enough sauce in the pan. Add more broth if needed. If there’s not enough sauce, then the Tteokbokki will dry out when melting the cheese.
- Add a thin layer of cheese on top, cover it and turn the heat back on to low. Remove from the heat when the cheese has melted.
- Serve and enjoy!
