Dooboo Boochim – Tofu Jun

If you enjoy tofu, this recipe is a simple Korean way to make it more interesting. If you are vegan, stop reading, if you are vegetarian you might enjoy this recipe if eggs are permitted in your diet. To anyone reading this tofu is a greatly contested food, as to whether it is good for you or bad for you. If you eat tofu, you should research it for yourself if the benefits outweigh the counter. I eat tofu on occasion, and I enjoy it with soy sauce. However, I am neither vegetarian or vegan and I just eat it because its a good source of protein at a low amount of calories.

What to Know About Dooboo Boochim

There is nothing special about making dooboo boochim its very simple to make, dip tofu in egg and fry it. However, there are many types of tofu, and there are a variety tastes and textures. One should try different types and textures to find the one that suits their taste best. For me, I like this recipe best with soft tofu. To me soft tofu has a better texture than firm tofu, and when eaten this way its better than just eating plain tofu. The egg wrapper gives the tofu more structure and a better taste.

Recipe Notes

Chef Tips: Making great Dooboo Boochim (Tofu Fry)

Use a skillet that is made for sautéing. Sautéing is different from frying in that you you use only enough oil to cook the food on one side. In sautéing you cook food on one side then flip the food over and cook the other side. This is different then deep frying or pan frying where you fry the food either completely immersed or half immersed. With sautéing you want to dedicate a stainless steel or non-stick pan for sautéing, so it maintains is non-stick properties.

To make Dooboo Boochim, start by preparing your ingredients placing them near the stove where you ca work each step. Have the prepared and salted Tofu on one plate. Have the whipped egg prepared in a bowl that is wide enough to dip the Tofu. Finally, have a clean plate to rest the prepared chicken. Once your assembly line is ready follow the instructions.
