Shimonita Black Yam Cake Konnyaku, 280 g

Delivery to UK, EU, and USA* only
£1.79

Add nourishing bite to your Japanese cooking.

A popular addition to stews and hot pots for its highly absorbent and chewy texture, bulk up rich flavours with the brilliantly healthy addition of this black konnyaku cake block. Mixed with salty seaweed powder to give it a dark, speckled appearance, this konnyaku cake is made 100% from Gunma's plumpest, regional konjac root to ensure you pair the juiciest, robust bite with your most flavoursome meals. Commonly sliced and placed onto skewers for boiling in oden hot pots, this konnyaku does more than soak up savoury flavours well, with sliced chunks often added to crisp okonomiyaki pancakes or topped with sweet miso as a unique treat.
