Ddubbokki (Spicy rice cake)

Hi maangchi, finally I found gochujang and rice cake at high end food market in Suria KLCC. It was very expensive. I made this ddubokki is very easy and fast to make. I like the taste of the gravy and the rice cake is very chewy but it taste is a bit sour. I don’t think it reaches expiry date yet, do you think it is spoiled?

The recipe is here.

    I went to the grocery store in Suria KLCC during my Gapshida trip!
    “it taste is a bit sour” It is not supposed to taste sour. Hot pepper paste is not sour. https://www.maangchi.com/ingredients/hot-pepper-paste-gochujang

    I think you bought chogochujang which is mixture of hot pepper paste, vinegar, and sugar.
    However, your ddukbokkie looks very tasty. My chogochujang recipe is posted here: https://www.maangchi.com/recipe/fresh-fish-meal
