Hot + Spicy Rice Cakes

1-IM7A5561

This is my version of Korean hot and spicy rice cakes. I don’t like my food too spicy, but if you do, feel free to add more red pepper paste. I also like to make it with Korean beef bouillon but if you don’t have Korean beef bouillon on hand, feel free to make it with chicken stock or chicken bouillon.
