How to make it

  • Clean Kombu(Dried Kelp) with wet kitchen paper.

  • Pour the water in a pan with Kombu(Dried Kelp) and leave for 30 minutes. Cook over the high heat and take the Kombu(Dried Kelp) out when the water begins to boil.

  • Add dried bonito flakes when boiled. Turn off the heat and leave for 2 minutes.

  • Strain the broth you make in direction 3. (Prepare 2 strainers and one bowl. Overlay a strainer on a bowl. Spread a piece of kitchen paper on the strainer. Strain the broth through another strainer.)
