This is the traditional dipping sauce for Japanese tempura. Serve with grated ginger, wasabi and daikon to mix in the sauce.
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
