The most secret of secret ingredients for Japan’s delicious fried foods and desserts! This small pack of potato flour, or katakuriko, is used in Japanese cuisine to make tempura batter, to coat chicken pieces when making karaage, as a main ingredient in traditional Japanese desserts, and as a sauce thickener for stir fries and marinades. This flour is well worth keeping in storage for your Japanese cooking adventures!

ITEM ID: #6426

Background

Katakuriko is a wonderfully light and fluffy type of flour, making it fantastic to use when making fried foods and sweet desserts. As it is gluten free, it makes a fantastic substitute for wheat flour when baking. Using it in cakes and similar such desserts will help to keep the cake moist and yield a fluffier texture.

How To Use

Starch powder can be used in a number of ways.
• Use to thicken up sauces or soups.
• Dust over food about to be cooked to lock in flavours and nutrients and prevent crumbling.
• Use when deep frying foods for a crispy coating.
