Sunday Kitchen #36 Dango

Today I made some dango.
I used this dango flour and followed the recipe on the back.
First I put the flour into a bowl.
Then I added 300ccs of hot water and mixed it with chopsticks.
When it had cooled down I kneaded the mixture.
Then I made some balls.
I cooked the dango in boiling water for 15 minutes.

There are many ways you can eat dango. I decided to make mitarashi dango.
To make the mitarashi I cooked sugar and soy sauce in a frying pan.

It was supposed to be 100 grams of sugar and 30 ccs of soy sauce ... but I didn’t know how to measure 100 grams of sugar so I just made a wild guess.
Then I was supposed to add 20 grams of potato starch. I guessed that amount too. I think it might have been a bit much.

Then I put the dango on sticks and put the mitarashi on top.
