THE SWEET SIDE OF KOREA


Hodduk, also know as the Korean winter pancake, is a pan-fried dough filled with crushed peanuts, sugar & cinnamon. According to Wikipedia, it originates from Chinese merchants who immigrated to Korea after the late 19th century.

When I arrived in Seoul last Feb, I met Nisha for the first time. We had landed much earlier than the remaining Hot Cities members and embarked on a city tour. Nisha kept talking about how much she wanted to try Hodduk. In no time, we found a lineup of shops & stands selling exactly that – fresh & made before your eyes.

The first bite was hot, but that melted sweetness kept oozing out – I was left wanting more. Street food couldn’t taste any better.

Here’s how you can make it at home
