A student’s mother recently gave me a Chinese cookbook for “beginners” after catching wind I don’t and can’t cook. The English is great and I finally got a chance to thumb through it last night.
What caught my attention was that most of the recipes required cornstarch…
Is it unhealthy? I’m glad it’s not oil… but i don’t really like that cornsyrupy texture to the liquid in my food. Do you think it can easily be omitted without ruining the whole dish? I haven’t gotten around to trying anything yet… but when I do, I don’t want to have to buy cornstarch.
