The culture in Korea is to devour tteokguk or rice cake soup, and manduguk or dumpling soup on Lunar New Year's Day. Dining them is known to bring excellent fortune for the next year. Records of seasonal customs from the 19th century say that to make tteoguk, rice cakes are cut into the form of coins and installed meat broth. The coin symbolizes prosperity, and the white colour of the rice alludes to cleansing.
There are some records that say without eating a bowl of tteokguk, one can't get a year older. There are strangely many sorts of tteokguk. Kaesong in North Korea has snowman-shaped joraengi tteokguk. There could also be one with rice sediments and some other amongst rice flour made into a dough with boiling water.Some tteokguk has rice or noodles in it, and a fewfunctions cakes made of wheat flour.
One mag from 1938 choices out dumpling soup as the special dish for the hot year. A bowl of noodles or rice cake soup with dumplings in it used to beconsideredan acceptable welcome for guests.
