You might know Korean rice cakes as ‘mochi’. You’ve probably tasted or seen mochi ice-cream or seen it at your local Asian grocery store. In Korean, it’s called “Chap-Ssal-Ddeok”. These are made from a rice-flour dough and filled with bean paste or a powdered nut and honey mixture.
Traditionally, rice cakes are a labor-and-time intensive process. You need to cook rice, squeeze it, mill it into powder, mix into a dough, steam and pound away at the dough.
