One of many things I miss about Korea is the street food. But it’s sad when I am unable to recreate the things that I miss so much because I don’t have the ingredients that I need.
So I’ve learned to adapt and make the things that I want with the things that I have. Also sometimes I feel too lazy to go through all that trouble to make the things I want. I am sort of lazy when it comes to spending way too much time in the kitchen.
Hoteok is made with rice cake batter filled with cinnamon sugar fillings inside with some nuts. It’s sweet and delicious. Since I didn’t have the rice flour or I just wanted to fix it quickly, I used tortillas instead.
And it was a great substitute and my two little ones loved it!
To make this you will need about 4 small tortillas. I used whole grain corn tortilla but you can use any types of tortillas.
In small bowl, mix 4 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons crushed pecans or almonds or walnuts.
Heat about 1 tablespoon oil (or spray with cooking spray) in pan. Place tortillas. Drizzle with honey.
Add about a spoonful filling over the honey. Fold the tortillas in half and cook on both sides, until the filling melts.
You can add some powdered sugar over the cooked tortillas, if you’d like.
