Korean Food: Jajang Tteokbokki

Hi Everyone, today I will introduce a snack food that kids will love. It is a variation of tteokbokki, using black bean paste instead of a spicy sauce. It is called jajang tteokbokki in Korean. Chewy rice cakes, cooked with savory black bean paste and vegetables, taste delicious. If your kids cannot eat normal spicy tteokbokki, this non spicy version can be a great substitute. Try it someday.
