Kushi Dango recipe

Hi everyone,

For a long time already I have been wanting to make Kushi Dango. Dango is a common snack in Japan and used a lot in manga and anime. Dango is made out of rice flour and water and covered with a nice sauce of soy and sugar.
It takes about an hour to fully make the whole thing but it is worth it ^__^

Here is the recipe for about 4 servings:
1 1/2 cup of glutineous rice flour (maybe a bit more, but see for yourself)
3/4 cup of warm water (not boiling)

For the sauce:
1/2 cup of water (maybe a nit more, but see for yourself)
1/4 cup of sugar
1 tablespoons of soy (dark or any other)
3/4 tablespoon of patato/corn starch/flour
3/4 tablespoon water

This recipe was slightly adjusted from what this webpage said, but the rest is ok. The first time it is a bit of guessing, but it almost can not go wrong, or at least that is my opinion ^O ^

Well enjoy,
