So, what is maissi?

Maissi, also known as maize starch or cornstarch, is a versatile food ingredient derived from the endosperm of corn kernels. It is a fine, white powder that is widely used as a thickening agent in various dishes, such as soups, sauces, and gravies. Maissi is also commonly used as a binding agent in baked goods and as a coating for fried foods. It has a neutral taste and is gluten-free, making it an excellent alternative for individuals with gluten sensitivities. Maissi is a pantry staple in many kitchens and is a popular ingredient in both home-cooking and commercial food production.
