Used different ingredients. I've made this without the dashi (didn't have any) or water for both tempura and eel rolls (thicken it more). Much better than the bottled stuff too! - 29 Sep 2008

This didn't taste exactly like traditional tempura sauce, and despite its description was still a bit too watery...but it was still very tasty! I would definitely make it again, but with less water. - 29 Sep 2008
