Tteokbokki is a famous Korean dish. It’s main ingredient is the rice cake. The dish is spicy and sweet and very filling. What I love about Tteokbokki, the taste is very enticing and of course it definitely increases your appetite.
The first time, my children ordered it at Korean restaurant, I thought it was like pasta while looking at the rice cake. To my surprise, it was totally different!
Most Tteokbokki recipe used anchovies and dried kelp for broth but since my family is not a big fan of anchovies, I used vegetable broth instead. On this recipe, I added grated cheese which is optional. You can serve it without cheese but somehow my children preferred to have cheese added.
