Derry Quinn's Note:
Dango, my favorite Anime food... Sailor Moon, Clannad, they all have it. I looked around the net and aggregated all the best bits i had tried into this recipe. A lot of it is similar to http://www.recipezaar.com/120390 , but i think this is better from experience. Dango are great for a party at your house, or bringing to peoples houses as a thoughtful gift, but i find they taste all the sweeter when you devour them yourself just after cooking :D Try to get Mochiko, it's the best! Alternatives for Katakuriko are listed in order of preference after it in the ingredients section. All of the ingredients are available at an Asian food store.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Combine the Mochiko slowly and gradually with the water in the mixing bowl, trying to get a solid-but-squishy dough.
- 2Knead the dough well.
- 3Make small round dumplings (or Dango) with the dough, roughly 1 inch in diameter at the most.
- 4Steam the dango for 10-15 mins in the steamer on medium or high heat, depending on your steamer.
- 5When they are done (brownled slightly) take them off and let the cool on a wire rack.
- 6Mix the sugar, water (Larger mesurement) and soysauce in the small pan over a medium heat.
- 7Combine the Katakuriko with the small tablespoon and a half of water.
- 8When the sauce starts to boil, add the mixture in the cup to it, mix and remove from heat.
- 9Grill the dango slightly and add the sauce to taste.
- 10YUM! Anime-licous!
