Korean people have been eating many different kinds of rice cakes as desserts or snacks for a long time. As Westerners eat cookies, pies, cakes, and candy, Koreans eat rice cakes, fruits, and other Korean desserts. Nowadays, Korean people also eat many Western desserts; so, Korean rice cakes are eaten less than before. However, Koreans still eat rice cakes on special days such as traditional holidays, birthdays, etc. Chapssaltteok (찹쌀떡) is a Korean dessert that is mainly made with sweet rice flour and red bean paste. It is almost similar to Japanese mocchi. It will be best to make your own red bean paste at home, but you can buy a can of red bean paste from the store. This time I just used red bean paste from a can. I hope you will like this chewy and sweet rice cake dessert.
