It’s medium firm tofu. Thank you for sharing the story about your mom. You miss her and the food she used to make for you, so you’ll be thinking of your mom while making mandu. It makes me feel touched. Good luck with your Korean cooking!

I am going to try to make them this weekend for my brother’s birthday. My mom’s Korean and father is white, but she made one dish periodically — Mandu. My dad added sour cream and red wine vinegar to the beef broth which apparently is how the Russians eat this kind of soup. It is my favorite way to eat mandu soup. Anyway, I lost my mom last year and was looking for a mandu recipe to make so that I can remember her meals and honor her. Your recipe is the one I chose. One question that I have — is the Tofu soft or firm? Thank you very much. Larry.

Fried food, chicken on a stick, and Miss Chois steak sandwiches. Mr Lee’s stand was my favorite.

I used ground lamb for the pork, soy sauce for fish sauce, used extra green onions in place of the buchu (only about 1 cup), and substituted cooked rice for the tofu. I fried and salted them, trying to recreate the memory of the mandu the little Ajumma in Anjeong-ri would sell.

It was…somewhat successful in that endeavor. Of course nothing can replace the memory of the grease-soaked paper bag full of that fried food heaven, but something else happened with my substitutions. I think it was the lamb that did it, but there was a hint of something from the British Isles in there – as if my mandu had dreamt of being cornish pasties. It was awesome.

Thank you for the recipe and you definitely have a new fan!

Check out the photo of tofu here: http://www.maangchi.com/ingredient/tofu
It shows that the whole packet weighs 14 ounces (396 grams), so half a packet should be 198 grams? : )
