    J. Ko's Note:

    This dish is one of the most popular snacks among Korean teens, especially girls. It is hot!!! Might be too spicy for those who are not familiar with Korean food, but it's really good. (You can make a milder version by cutting back on the red pepper paste and red pepper powder.) Once you taste it, you will always go back! Sometimes I use thin rice cakes, they cook faster and also absorb flavor faster. I got this recipe from the Korean Kitchen web site. Our Korean homestay student says this is as good as her mother's.
