I am not familiar with potato starch. I might try this. Do you know a dish with a white sauce, with small shrimp, peas, and maybe some small squid? It is served in a small round shallow pan?
I think maybe it is made with rice flour, but I don't know for sure.
It was a favorite dish I had in Japan, next to sushi and noodles.
