This is perfect! My husband loves to dip Chinese appetizers (egg rolls, spring rolls, potstickers) in hot mustard, and this was as good as any restaurant version. Before I let it sit (per the directions) it seemed too runny, but I let it sit overnight in the fridge. I stirred it before we were about to eat, and it was the consistency of regular mustard - so don't worry! I made Alton Brown's Perfect Potstickers (Recipe #137829), served them with some shrimp fried rice (Recipe #38748), and made this on the side. It felt like we had gotten take out! This is a keeper sauce. Another great recipe, dojemi! :)

This will defnitely be a great dip for Chinese food, but in the meantime, I tripled the recipe & will be serving it as one of several dip choices for some fried mac & cheese balls as well as sweet potato wedges that I've made (recipes here on Zaar) for a 4th of July celebration at my place! Thanks for an exceptionally easy recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Unrated Asian Recipe Tag event]
