DRIED SHAVING BONITO is a variation of bonito flakes that are been shaved instead of shredded, it has great flavour and textures that promises premium quality and that is why Kanika selected this item as one of its product.Bonito is a kind of tuna, and Katsuobushi is dried, smoked bonito. Katsuobushi is often used as flakes shaved from a piece of dried fish. Because dried bonito is packed with a lot of umami (savoury taste), it is perfect for making Dashi (fish broth) with which is a crucial component for Japanese cooking. There are other popular uses of bonito flakes, as a seasoning or topping sprinkled on various dishes such as boiled vegetables, tofu, rice, and soba noodles and as a stuffing for rice balls. It can also be used instead of stock cubes in soups and casseroles. So if a quick fish broth is needed, or no fish heads are available, use bonito flakes instead. Just a pinch goes a long way.
