How To Cook Konnyaku

Before you use konnyaku in your recipe, you will need to boil konnyaku. It removes the smell and makes konnyaku absorb more flavors and improves the texture.

Speaking of the texture, you can decide how you boil it based on the texture you want to achieve.

Cook from cold water: Konnyaku lose more moisture with this method. Hence, the texture will be firmer and chewier. Once boiling, cook for 2-3 minutes and drain.

Cook in boiling water: Cook in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. The unique smell will go away and the texture will be more giggly and tender.
