Step 1

Cut the tofu into 1 centimetre (¼ inch) thick rectangles or squares.

Step 2

Find a frying pan large enough to hold all of the tofu pieces in a single layer. Add the vegetable and sesame oils to the saucepan and crank the heat up to high. Add the tofu and fry for 2-3 minutes, until lightly browned. Turn the tofu pieces over and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the other side is golden brown.

Step 3

While the tofu is frying, mix the water, soy sauce, spring onion, sugar, gochugaru, garlic, and salt in a small bowl. Add this braising liquid to the pan with the tofu. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Simmer, spooning the sauce over the tofu from time to time, until all of the liquid is absorbed by the bean curd (15-20 minutes).

Step 4

Remove tofu to a plate and sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and spring onion.
