Did you ever watch Maangchi on You Tube? Love her vidoes, she's cute, informative and fun.  This is one of  her dishes, well, inspired by one of her dishes.  I did not have the ingredients she had in her tutorial.  I did buy the rice logs frozen at our local Asian market.  I would like to make them some time though.  A future post... 

I did not have the fish cake, the next time I will be sure to add that.  I kind of made my recipe from a  bunch of different ideas on the internet.  Here is a link to one of the recipes.


4 cubes vegetable bouillon (mine)
1 quart water
1 teaspoon kosher salt
juice of 2 limes
2 tabelspoons fish sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1 generous teaspoon chili oil
1 tablespoon gochugaru flakes (Korean chili flakes)
1 tablespoon palm sugar
4 large cloves garlic
5 scallions sliced in 2 inch pieces
rice logs

Soak rice cakes in warm water for 10 mins.

In a large pot stir bouillon into water.  Add salt, white pepper, juice of two limes, fish sauce,  chili oil, palm sugar, gochugaru flakes and garlic.  Bring to a boil.  add rice cakes and onion. Bring to a boil again and then reduce to a simmer.  Simmer for 10 to 20 mins until the rice cakes are fully cooked. 

Add the sesame oil, sesame seeds, and green onion then quickly stir. Serve warm.
