Ichimi Togarashi (Japanese Red Chili Pepper Powder) - Single Serve Packets, 0.26 oz
This spicy chili powder is made with Japanese habanero peppers and takanotsume peppers. The chili powder is a popular spice in Japan, used on all types of dishes. Exhibiting a significant amount of heat and umami at the same time, it goes well with pretty much anything, but really shines on dishes that exhibit bold flavors, achieving a balance between the heat of the chili pepper powder and the other flavors in the dish. This Ichimi Togarashi packaging has also been specially designed; since ichimi loses its original flavor and scent when exposed to the air for too long, this ichimi is packed into 25 individual size packets in order to maintain freshness.
Ichimi is a very versatile spice used to add heat and flavor to a variety of dishes. You can add it to both Japanese and Western dishes to give any food a spicy kick. Simply sprinkle it on top of foods as a garnish, mix it with rice, or mix it into soups and stews. It goes well with many Japanese foods, especially those that have bold flavors such as okonomiyaki and tantan ramen noodle. Add a dash of ichimi togarashi to mayonnaise and soy sauce to create a savory and hot salad dressing or a spicy vegetable dip. You could even sprinkle some on top of french fries or your pizza!
