What is katakuriko??

Katakuriko is mostly made from potato starch.

Potato starch is tasteless and odorless and does not interfere with the taste of food.

Katakuriko has the property of being strongly thickened by adding water and heat. This effect is used to thicken dishes such as soups and mapo tofu.

Cornstarch also has the same thickening effect, but it is weaker than potato starch. However, it remains thick even when it cools down, so it is suitable for making sweets such as custard cream and pudding.

Also, if you use katakuriko for the batter of deep-fried foods such as fried chicken, it will give a crispy finish.
