Japanese cuisine is all about simple concepts done to perfection. Rice koji such as this is used to produce a lot of iconic Japanese foods, such as soy sauce, miso, mirin, sake, and amazake. As such, it is a very useful ingredient to have in the pantry. Check out this and other essential cooking ingredients at Japan Centre online.


To make shio koji for added umami depth of flavour:
- Break apart one block of dried rice koji (200g) into a sealable container and mix with 70 g salt.
- Add 330 ml of water to the crushed block and salt, mixing thoroughly until the koji is fully submerged.
- Seal the container and leave to ferment at room temperature.
- Open the lid to stir the koji mixture daily and release any built up gasses. Seal afterwards.
- Repeat for one week to complete the fermentation of your own shio koji. Add to meats, sauces and even custards to enrich your favourite foods.
