About Rice Cakes:
Also called "Nian Gao" (年糕) in Chinese

Rice cakes can be found in both Chinese market or Korean market. They are usually frozen and come in different shapes. They can be cooked either frozen or thawed. If you want to save cooking time then soak them in warm water for 2 hours before use.

Rice cakes are chewy. Boiling makes it soft. Frying makes it hard, and the longer you fry the harder it gets. But we love their chewy texture. Give it a try!
