Tteokbokki Recipe (Simple)

Hello Korean Food Lover, 

Tteokbokki is one of the finest culinary wonder. I mean who doesn't love tteokbokki? It is the most delicious food I ever tasted. I ate it repetitively for weeks then COVID-19 happened.I spend most of my money in ordering food but then one day I realised how much I've spend in food. That very night, I spend my night searching for recipes.Then in the morning, I went to grocery shop and bought all the grocery. Since then, I realised how much money I could save in a week. However, in lockdown period rather than ordering online you can cook tteokbokki by yourself. 

This recipe is my easy way to cook tteokbokki

6.Soy Sauce

7. Sugar
