Glass Noodle Stir Fry (Japchae; μž‘μ±„)

Korean glass noodle stir fry which is called ‘Jap-chae’ in Korean is the festive food that always makes me excited even when I just smell it! It brings so many colours in my lunchbox as if there’s a bunch of random flowers blooming in sunlight. I posted Japchae when I was in London but this time it’s cooked in a traditional way with traditional ingredients (except spinaches because they are usually gone off fast so I thought I’ll skip spinaches to enjoy this noodle as long as I can ☺️🌸)
