Using dashi powder is the easiest and quickest way to make dashi or add dashi flavor to the dish. Simply sprinkle dashi powder over the food while cooking or add to the water to make instant dashi.




  1. In a medium saucepan, add water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add dashi powder. 

  2. Stir well and turn off the heat. Dashi is ready to use. Use it immediately. I don't recommend to store dashi in the refrigerator or freezer.
