Glutinous Black Rice Cakes

Glutinous Black Rice Cakes

Michael brought some interesting looking rice cakes from school today. He said one of his colleagues gave them to him. He tends to bring food home from school when he isn’t sure about it, so I am basically a his poison tester. :) I haven’t seen these kind of rice cake before so I didn’t know what it was called at first.

I tasted a bit, it was glutinous and sweet. It has some beans, seeds, and Chinese red dates, as you can see, it looks and feels really healthy too.

When I confirmed that it is not contaminated, Michael had small bite too (he has some allergies). He liked it and he asked for more bites.

I researched on the internet a little bit and not long after I found what it is called. It is called Hkmi Chal Ddeok (흑미찰떡) in Korean, which means glutinous black rice cake. So I added this rice cake on my do recipe list.
