Ingredient - Katakuriko (Japanese Potato Starch)
8th April 2016
Katakuriko is a fine vegetable starch originally taken from the dogtooth violet plant. It is used in Japanese cuisine as a sauce or soup thickener or as a batter coating before deep frying.
This is a very high quality potato starch and gluten free. When deep frying it makes the batter thin and crispy.
As the dogtooth violet plant is very expensive, nowadays, normal potato starch can be used as a substitute.
At Orientalmart, we sell Toyo Potato Starch Powder made with 100% potato starch from potatoes in Hokkaido, Japan.
Examples of dishes it is used are: to make Chicken Kaarage or coat tofu for Agedashi tofu.
