ho-tteok (korean pancake)

Ho-tteok is a kind of hot pancake that is made from glutinous rice. The street vendors cook it by taking a small ball of raw glutinous rice dough and pressing a large lump of raw brown sugar (others use honey) and pound peanuts into the center and then pulling the dough around it. Then it flattened on a griddle into a pancake.

I was heading home when i saw this vendor in front of the gate of our apartment selling this ho-tteok so i bought 3 for $1.

There's still one left on the next day

so i thought of putting a slice of cheese on top and put it in the oven.

Here's what happened to the pancake. It doesn't look good but it tastes better.
