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

Let’s make spicy rice cake( Dukbokki) by using the Korean rice cake which I shared in previous post : (https://dharasdiary.wordpress.com/2016/11/16/504/?preview=true)

You might be able to fine it easily at food vendors on the street of Korea. There are always delicious Dukbokki boiling and ready to go. It is made with mainly rice cakes[garaetteok; cylinder shaped rice cake], fish cakes, boiled egg and seasoned with chilli paste, but here I’m sharing egg-free, pure vegetarian version also 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 chilli paste then it’s less hot.

If you have refrigerated rice cake, the preparation gets easier, in this recipe have used refrigerated one!
