So, what is tärklis?

Tärklis, also known as starch, is a versatile ingredient commonly used in cooking and baking. It is a fine, white powder that is derived from various sources such as corn, potatoes, wheat, and rice. Tärklis acts as a thickening agent, adding texture and structure to recipes such as sauces, gravies, and pies. It is also used as a binding agent in meatballs and fish cakes, and as a coating for fried foods. Due to its neutral flavor profile, tärklis can be incorporated into both sweet and savory dishes. It is a pantry staple that can elevate the texture and consistency of any recipe.
