Hotteok Korean Cooking

Hotteok Korean Cooking

Hottock is a snack that everyone loves in Korea.
I often used to buy it at the store on my way home from school, so it's nostalgic to me.


All-purpose flour
3 cups (you can also use bread flour or half the portion of cake flour)
1 cup (200 ml)
1 teaspoon
Dry yeast
1 tablespoon
Water (35°C)
1/2 cup
1/2 tablespoon
Brown sugar
1 cup
Cinnamon powder
1/2 tablespoon
Ground sesame seeds
1 tablespoon
Peanuts (finely ground)
3 tablespoons


1. Combine the dry yeast and sugar into a bowl and mix.
2. Add salt as well as the sifted flour, knead until the flour has blended in, and gather into a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 2 hours.
3. Mix all of the ingredients for the filling together.
4. Divide the dough into 10 equal portions, stretch it out into a circle, place one heaping tablespoon of the filling in the center, and wrap it up. (It won't stick to your hand a if you rub them with a little oil).
5. Just like making meat dumplings, pinch the top to close.
6. Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan and place the closed ends at the bottom. Flip it over after 5 seconds, and press down with a spatula coated with oil.
7. Fry over low heat until both sides are golden brown.
