5 sheets nori seaweed
1½ tablespoons sake
1 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1. If you don't have kombu dashi packet you can use dashi powder (this is not vegan). You can also swap water in this recipe for homemade soup stock. If that's the case then there is no need to add in the stock powder. Please adjust the taste by adding more soy sauce or salt at the end.
2. Feel free to splash in some water until the nori paste thickens and becomes paste.
3. Make sure to transfer the nori paste into the container as soon as it becomes a paste, otherwise the nori will start to stick at the bottom of your pan.
4. Some kombu dashi powder does contain fish, so please read the label carefully.
Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 10 days.
