Yubuchobap (Korean Fried Tofu Pocket) Recipe

If your concept of going out for sushi is to order rolls with no raw fish, you might be familiar with inari. These delectable packets, made from deep-fried tofu pockets, will satisfy your palette with a rush of umami. 

Korean and Japanese cuisines share certain similarities, and you can find a variant of this meal in both. Tess Le Moing, Tasting Table recipe developer, provides a recipe for yubuchobap, a Korean variant of fried tofu pockets.

 Le Moing's yubuchobap has a basic filling and may be readily customized with your preferred toppings."You can add any additional mix-ins you like," Le Moing advises, recommending "tuna or hard-boiled egg for added protein." 

For a delicious and full lunch, add some chopped green onion to the rice or a couple of spoonfuls of ground beef. These adaptable stuffed tofu pockets are an excellent choice.

This dish requires water, short grain rice (rinsed and drained), finely chopped carrots, broccoli buds, seasoned rice vinegar, kosher salt (or soy sauce), sesame oil, a can of seasoned fried bean curd, and black sesame seeds.
