Hotteok/Hoddeok is a popular street food. It is basically fried,stuffed bun. It was an article that came in the newspaper that reminded me of a recipe that I had bookmarked. The moment I read the article I made up my mind to make it as evening snack. On checking the recipe, I realised that it was the sweet version, whereas D prefers savoury snacks when he comes back from school. Thankfully the site I had bookmarked, Maangchi, had the savoury version as well.
In the original recipe, the author recommends using oil generously while shaping the hotteok. After trying that, I decided to try with some water as well. I found the use of water more manageable as compared to oil. It’s totally upto you. You may use oil or water, whatever suits you. Keep the oil hot and ready so that you can drop the hotteok directly into the oil after shaping. The dough being sticky, you can’t place it anywhere after shaping.
D loved the hotteoks. His only suggestion was to add some meat into it 🙂
