Recipe: Ddukbokki or tteokbokki (Korean Spicy Rice Cake)

I love to create new dishes in the kitchen and I'm a very greedy person so the things that I made are usually loaded with too-many-different-ingredients so nu surprise that the food I make are usually very upsized. hahaha! Wells, that's my style! So one day I finally set my mind to make the famous Korean food, ddukbokki. FYI, I have not eaten enough ddukbokki to make any authentic ones. So this recipe is really very much based on my own preference. :)

1. Topokki hot sauce (available in NTUC, under Korean food section)
2. Korean rice cakes (available in NTUC, under Korean food section)
3. Napa cabbage, thinly sliced
4. Carrots, thinly sliced
5. Leeks, sliced
6. chopped onions and garlic

**Noted I did not put in any korean fish cakes because I couldn't find them :( 

1. Boil the korean rice cakes in medium fire till soften
2. Add 2 tbsp of oil to a frying pan and fry the onions and garlic till golden brown
3. Add in the vegetables, let the mixture simmer for about 2mins on medium fire
4. Add in the pre-boiled rice cakes and give a quick stir
5. Add in the topokki hot sauce followed by 200ml of water
6. Cook under low fire until the sauce has thickened slightly (about 10mins)
7. Serve. Get ready a huge bowl of rice because the sauce is seriously daebak!!! 

Tadah! :D

I probably will be waiting another soon, but I'm going to be more adventitious this time round! Hehe, guess how am I going to transform this transitional Korean food? Stay tune! :P
