Korean sweet rice cake balls (Gyeongdan)
This, sweet rice cake (Gyongdan, 경단) is a Korean traditional snack. It is my husband’s favourite rice cake (I like it too, but if I have it too much, I feel sick, because it is quite sweet.)
It has sweetened red bean paste inside. Many years ago, Koreans believed red beans in food (especially in rice cakes) drives out the devil spirit, so they used it on a baby’s first birthday to wish them long life and health.
