ABOUT Korean spicy rice cake/ Dukbokki (No onion, No garlic) RECIPE

Let us make spicy rice cake(Dukbokki) by using the Korean rice cake which I shared in previous post : ( http://www.betterbutter.in/recipe/20576/korean-garaetteok-long-cylinder-shaped-rice-cake ). You might be able to find it easily at food vendors on the street of Korea. There are always delicious Dukbokki boiling and ready to go.It is made with mainely rice cakes[garaetteok; cylinder shaped rice cake], fish cakes, boiled egg and seasoned with chili paste, but here I'm sharing egg-free, pure vegetarian version with no onion, no garlic! The rice cakes are chewy and tender.It looks super spicy and originally it is! But you can control the amount of chili paste then its less hot. If you have refrigerated rice cake, the preparation gets easier, in this recipe have used refrigerated one!
