In December 2019, we are going to launch another range of Kantan – Dried Sliced Kantan / Torch Ginger Flower.
The Biotechnology processing approach of making the Dry Sliced Bunga Kantan
- The dehydrated Bunga Kantan / Torch Ginger Flower is made from the pure flower – The outer layer of petals on all stems are removed, only the pure sweet flower from the middle section is used.
- The process is using a dehydration system and low heat drying to retain the texture & aroma.
Why the dry sliced Kantan?
This is an alternative to the cooked Kantan range. It has a longer shelf life, and is lighter in weight. However, one advantage is if you want to make kerabu / Malaysian salad, this is a better alternative.
How to re-hydrate and use the Torch Ginger Flower / Bunga Kantan?
How to use?
You can add the flowers straight to your Assam Laksa, Nyonya Assam or other dishes and simmer.
How to re-hydrate?
If you want to use the flower for salad or garnishing, soak the dehydrated flower in warm water and soak for at least 15 minutes.
** To maximise the hydration process, please allow at least 10 minutes for the flowers to soak in the gravy / stock.
