Dduk bok ki is a popular Korean dish made using hot pepper paste and rice cake. Hot pepper paste is usually available in Korean grocery shops. Some Chinese groceries sell it too. Rice cake is available in almost all Asian grocery stores.
I like the hotness and sweetness of this dish. I like to eat dduk bok ki when the weather is cold or when its rainy. It keeps your body warm. It is a quick and easy dish. It can be served for lunch or dinner.
