For the preparation of the so-called dough for Dango, you need to boil water. Then in a bowl with rice flour pour it slowly, stirring constantly with a spoon or whisk until the mass average density. Actually, the dough for the Dango looks more like a soft clay. It should not stick to hands and fall to pieces. When the mixture reaches the status of a homogeneous substance, it is possible to start forming balls the size of a large walnut or a ball for ping-pong. In General, you can give your Dango the shape that you want. Let it be, for example, cubes or ovals, like quail eggs. Be creative!
Next, you need to cook the Dango in steam for 15-20 minutes. If at hand was not the steamer, you can throw them in boiling water, but there is a great risk that they will fall apart or lose its original shape. So it is better to build a makeshift double boiler out of two saucepans of different sizes: in a pan pour a little more water, wait till it boils; it insert a small saucepan in which to bathe future Dango.

When Dango is ready, pour the sauce and start eating.
