Korean Tofu BuChim/ Dubu BuChim


This recipe caught my eyes when I was browsing Aeri's Kitchen for some Korean recipe ideas.  It caught my eyes because it looked exactly like a tofu dish my friend served at her house recently.  So, I added this dish because it was so simple to make and I have the organic firm tofu at home.  This tofu buchim didn't fail me, the sauce was delicious and did I say it was so easy to make?  Give it a try if you are having a lazy night and want a quick and delicious side dish for your dinner.  Oh, I liked Aeri's website for Korean food as she also made the trouble of making videos of her preparing the dishes.  I really kudo to those who did the extra step.



Recipe adapted from Aeri's Kitchen with slight modification.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pack of organic firm tofu, cut like above picture, should have 10 pieces total
  • 1 stalk scallion, chopped only the green part, reserved for garnish

Sauce:
  • 2 Tbsp. Kikkoman light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. chili powder or chili oil
  • 1/2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. mirin
  • 1/2 Tbsp. pure sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds

Method:

1.  In a small bowl, mix all the sauce ingredients together.  Set aside.

2.  In a flying pan, add a little cooking oil and pan-fry the tofu slices until brown on both sides.  Dish out, drain on paper towel and arrange on a plate.

3.  Spoon the sauce mixture on the tofu like picture above and garnish with chopped scallion.

Oozing with so much taste, we too do enjoy Korean food although I don't cook much of it at home as my hubby is prefers curries. I like the way the tofu is prepared, all the more its so nutritious.

Thanks all. :)

Tigerfish, hahahaha.... you can serve the sauce with plain cold soft tofu too.

Rita, it's just any firm tofu block that selling in the store. You pan-fried until it looks like that. ;)
