Korean JapChae (Sweet Potato Noodles)



I'm not a great fan of Korean cuisine but lately after savouring some Korean food during my recent vacation, I've sort of developed a liking to their stir-fry noodles, pork bulgogi and Tteokbokki or rice cakes.  I've a vague idea of how this stir-fry Dangmeyon was prepared but after surfing the net, settled for this simple vegetarian stir-fry sweet potato noodles.  My family enjoyed this meal and look forward to more.

  1. I love stir-fry Dangmeyon too. I think is better than our 'dong fen', more chewy and can also make into salad.

    1. Yes, I agree with you. This Dangmyeon is more chewy and doesn't absorb so much water as 'dong fun'.

    1. At first I thought it's difficult to cook Korean food but since we can find the ingredients in Aeon now, worth giving it a try. My pleasure to link up with LTU!
