Korean rice cakes (also called tteok) are made from a special kind of rice. After being steamed, this rice becomes sticky, making it perfect for kneading and shaping. To make tteok, the rice is pounded, rolled into logs and cut into thin rounds. They have a springy, unique consistency and is popular at celebrations and casual tables alike. In this dish, you’ll serve the rice cakes with earthy shiitake mushrooms, napa cabbage and tatsoi, a mustard relative with a slightly peppery kick.
