    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
