Arrowroot is made from extracting the starch from the rhizomes of the Maranta arundinacea and is popular in Chinese cuisine for thickening sauces, such Sweet 'n' Sour Sauce. Arrowroot does not affect the taste of the dish and this makes it a more versatile thickener than say flour.
Instructions for Use
For a savoury sauce: Mix a few teaspoons with cold water into a milky consistency and gradually add to the pan. It is best to remove the wok/frying pan/saucepan from the heat first to prevent clumping.
For desserts: Use 2-3 tablespoons of arrowroot powder per pint of liquid. Desserts can be made with milk, fruit juice or water, flavoured with fruit powder and natural sweeteners. Heat the liquid gently until it just comes to a gentle bubble, leave to cool and allow to set in the fridge.
