A cornstarch slurry is a mixture of a cold liquid with cornstarch. It is used as a thickening agent, and is particularly common in Asian sauces.

A typical cornstarch slurry will consist of 2 parts cold water and 1 part cornstarch. The slurry can then be added slowly to hot sauces until the desired consistency is reached.

Ingredients[edit]

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water

Procedure[edit]

  1. Pour the cornstarch in a cup. Add water. Mix thoroughly with a fork. Re-mix as needed.
