When it comes to tasty Korean banchan, there are few flavours more intoxicating than dubu jorim - a Korean tofu recipe like no other. Deliciously soft tofu is fried to form a crisp exterior, while the inside remains soft and decadent. It's then lightly braised in a vibrant and flavourful chilli sauce - the tofu soaks up the sauce and creates a fantastic combination of flavour and texture.
It's a great dish to eat in many ways - my favourite way is to simply have it over rice with as a rice bowl with some kimchi or maybe some delicious cucumber salad Oi Muchim. A fried egg on to never hurt anyone too! It's also great as a side dish served alongside other small plates (banchan) as a larger Korean feast.
This dubu jorim recipe is one of my favourite Korean tofu recipes, in fact one of my favourite tofu recipes period! Lets see just how easy this flavour-bomb is to put together at home.
