Dango in general are made by rolling grain powder into little balls with some (hot) water and then steaming or boiling them. The balls are skewered together and served with anko (red bean paste), sauce or various other toppings on them.
One of the most popular dango is mitarashi dango. Mitarashi dango are served covered in a sweet-and-salty soy sauce based dressing and are often seen in tourist hotspots like Asakusa.
I personally love mitarashi dango and I would like to present you with some ways I found that make them taste even better!
