That poll analysis: Dango?


1. As it seems now, most of you are in fact Dango lovers, and will be out there trying to get the latest Dango, be it small or big. In fact, I have to admit that I am one huge fan of Dango, even though I seldom have the chance to eat these mochi-like delicacy from our Japanese snack house. It’s a pity that mochi is more common around in our humid region. Why, is it those eyes that haunt us so?

2. I guess that is also why the next highest voted option is about the eyes. If you ask me, the eyes are a huge symbolization of the love that they have for Nagisa, our oblivious kind hearted girl who seems to be so docile that even living dangos are more tsundere than her. She has to pick up some good tips from our delicious Kyou, who has mastered the art of throwing a book so fast that it defeats Einstein’s law of gravity!

3. For those who chose Taiyaki, shame on you. Stop being one of those loyalists and worship something new. I mean, you already have a more retarded moe version of Ayu in Fuuko, who is fascinated with stupid stars (and did I say that I have a mild dislike of Fuuko?). Seriously, stop thinking about half-conscious loli-looking girls going starry-eyed or Taiyaki loving, find yourself a delicious Kyou, Tomoyo and Kotomi.

4. For the rest, I don’t care. HAH! No is like just ….not cool. Being lactose intolerant is just sad sometimes, even though I know a certain person who is as so. I love my milk, thank you.

    I tried to make Dango almost a month ago. Not having a clue on how to make it, I made lots of rice, put in the plastic and then put a bunch of book at the top of it to make it round-ish. It made a mess. The books were too heavy and the weight made my rice-plastic balls to explode. All my books were sticky and ricy. To make them hard again, I put them in the fridge but it got as hard as stone T__T
    anyways, I warmed it in the microwave but the rice couldn’t take any shape so I used my god given hands and made rice balls. Despite all my efforts I still couldn’t put the freakin Skewer into them. Royal pain in the ass.
    I gave up in the end. Not even sure if I was on the right track :/

    Dango? If I recall those are a type of dumpling right? And they have eyes? Sounds very interesting…

    @otoha… this might help:

    glutinous rice and water, mix, roll, steam and skewer.

    variation 2, instead of steaming, boil some water, put the rolled mixture into the boiling water until it floats, let it stay about a minute more then remove from water. let it dry a little bit before skewering them.

    for the sauce, mix soy sauce, sugar and water in a bowl. bring to a boil. separately mix potato starch or corn starch in another bowl. introduce the water and starch mixture into the boiling mixture until it thickens.

    before serving, slightly grille the skewered blobs then brush sauce over them.

    that’s dango for you. by the way, make sure your rice and water mixture is as soft as your earlobe before rolling them into balls.

    have fun! :)

    Wait Dango is a food? I thought they were just cute little characters from Clannad.

    Hmm, learn something new everyday!

    Make the next poll about starfish, and compare the results to these. Then, we will see to whom the title of number one belongs.

    *Dramatic cue*

    I support dango, by the way.
