tteokbokki - www.healthnote25.com

Tteokbokki is a Korean snack in the form of tteok from rice flour cooked in spicy and sweet gochujang seasoning. Tteok used in the form of rod or cylinder. This snack is a popular food sold in pojangmacha.

At first, this snack comes from the cuisine of the Joseon Dynasty palace called gungjung tteokbokki. At that time, this dish was huintteok cooked with soy sauce with beef, bagogari, green bean sprouts, parsley, shiitake, carrots, and onions. 

It feels so much different from the spiced chili tteokbokki known now. In addition, tteok used can consist of 5 colors that symbolize Korea: red, yellow, white, black, and blue.
