A chori is a dish that's been cooked in soy sauce until the flavors are infused. When cooking tofu, I keep it simple by frying the tofu first and then after it's crispy adding a few dashes of soy sauce so it doesn't become overly salty.
Dubu Chorim (Korean Fried Tofu with Soy Sauce)
Silken tofu, however much you'd like sliced about 1/2-inch thick
A few slivers of sliced green onion
Oil for frying
Slice tofu about 1/2-inch thick. Pan-fry on medium-high heat until browned. This should take a few minutes. Carefully flip with a spatula. Then add a few dashes of soy sauce on each slice of tofu and a few slivers of sliced green onion so they saute while the other side of the tofu is browning.
Serve on small plates.
