Japanese graters – or oroshigane – break down roots such as wasabi, daikon and ginger into a dense paste, allowing them to release their full flavour. Simply rub the root in a circular motion against the surface of the grater. The teeth cut into the vegetable in every direction, creating an aromatic paste that can be scraped off and used in dipping sauces, curry pastes or salad dressings.
Japanese graters are also known as shark skin graters, as shark skin was originally the only material that Japanese chefs would use to grate wasabi - in fact, they were also known as wasabi graters as this used to be their main use. These days, surfaces which mimic the shark skin texture are more widely used for lots of different ingredients.
You can use Japanese graters with most roots and vegetables, so the oroshigane is a handy tool for any kitchen. Try using it to grate fresh turmeric root, garlic cloves or fresh galangal root for Asian inspired dishes.
