   If you decide to make only one sauce, this is
   generally the most popular says Julie Kataoka. From
   the "Japanese Country Cookbook, by Russ Rudsinski.
   
   Grind sesame seeds using a mortar and pestle or a
   small blender. Combine with soy sauce, oil, vinegar
   and water. Place garlic, togarashi and onion on a
   separate plate for diners to add as they wish. Place
   sauce in small individual dishes for each diner.
   
   Note: Togarashi is a Japanese seasoning made of
   crushed red pepper and other condiments, blended into
   a powder. Red or black pepper may be substituted.
