You pray tahajjud prayer as any other prayer. It's an optional prayer, done between isha and fajr, and is of two rakat. You can recite as much quran as you like, there's no stipulation of it being long or short. It's up to you to pray however length you desire. Easy and simple.
Like any library, Islam Stack Exchange offers great information, but does not offer personalized advice or legal verdicts, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your Mufti, Imam, or other trustworthy Counselor.
