Recipe for Air Fried Rice Cake

To air fried rice cakes (aka (에어프라이떡), all you need is one of Korea’s most beloved ingredients – Tteok!

Tteok is the Korean word for rice cakes. And no, they’re not the low-calorie dry rice cakes you might be familiar with as a snack.

Korean rice cakes, Tteok, are made with rice flour and transformed into soft, slightly sticky and incredibly chewy pieces of “rice dough” as I like to call it.They can come in many shapes but the most common shape we use is the cylinder-shaped rice cakes, which you can find in any Korean supermarket near you.

All you have to do is put your rice cakes in air fryer for 10 mins and dip them in any sauce of your choice!

How To Make Air Fried Rice Cakes

If your TTeok (korean rice cakes) are frozen and stuck together, add them into a large bowl with cold water to separate them for about 5-10 minutes before using them. If not, move to the next step.

In a large bowl, add the rice cakes (tteok) and oil and mix to coat. 

Place rice cakes in an air fryer, pieces not touching each other, and air fry at 370 degrees for 8 minutes. 

Toss or flip and air fry at 400 degrees for another 3-4 minutes to crisp up the outside more.

    I’ve tried Korean rice cakes before, however I’ve never tried them this way. The crispy outside perfectly complimented the soft and chewy inside. Highly recommend.
