Shimaya Katsuo Bonito Dashi Stock - Powder, Catering Size, 1 Kg, 500g x 2 bags
Dashi in Japanese cuisine is similar to chicken or vegetable stock in Western cuisines, as it is what provides the flavour base for many Japanese dishes. Authentic dashi made at home involves stewing umami-rich ingredients such as bonito fish, kombu kelp seaweed and shiitake mushrooms in water and allowing the flavours to infuse. If that seems too bothersome, then why not try some of the instant dashi items Japan Centre has to offer?
