Hi Halal Food Lovers ,
Approximately, 20 years ago searching for a halal food was tough even nowadays it is kind of tough. Especially when you are in a country that has limited halal food restaurant then it is 10 times more harder. As it is stated in one verse in Quran “He [Allah] has only forbidden to you dead animals, blood, the flesh of swine, and that which has been dedicated to other than Allah.”This Quranic verse merely states that animals are unfit to eat if slaughtered in the name of deities other than Allah, but jurists have further ruled that animals must be slaughtered in the name of Allah and by a faithful Muslim retrieved from theconversation.com.
However, life is always filled with complications, we can always solve every puzzle. Rather then, waiting for someone to open a halal restaurant you can always cook by yourself. It is cheaper and you can always do it by yourself. Tteokbokki is one of the most loved Korean dish of all time. The recipe I'm sharing is actually the recipe I followed and tried. It works for me! Hope it works for you also.
