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.
