Proper home-made dashi is made by allowing bonito fish flakes, kombu kelp seaweed, and/or other ingredients rich in umami to infuse in water. Nowadays many Japanese people prefer the convenience of powdered dashi. How To Use • Miso Soup: 1 sachet of dashi, 4-5 cups of water and 4 tablespoons of miso paste makes 4-5 servings.• Noodle Soup: 2 sachets of dashi, 5 cups of water and soy sauce makes 3 servings.
