Singoda Flour (Water Chestnut Powder)
Top-Op Singoda Flour, also known as water chestnut flour or water chestnut starch, is a gluten-free flour made from the dried and ground water chestnut (Singoda) seeds. Despite its name, water chestnuts are not true nuts but rather aquatic vegetables.
Singoda flour is commonly used in Indian and Southeast Asian cuisines as a thickening agent, particularly in recipes that require a smooth and clear consistency. It has a fine texture and is often used as a substitute for wheat flour in gluten-free recipes.
Singoda flour is known for its ability to create a smooth and glossy texture, making it suitable for dishes like gravies, sauces, and desserts. It can be used to thicken soups, stews, and curries, as well as to make puddings, batters, and doughs.
