To Prepare

A delicious dish that warms up the cold winter days, Japanese curry is prepared with chicken or beef, but you can also try it in its vegetarian version. The secret? The creaminess and its umami flavour that you can get with curry cubes or with the preparation of a spicy roux. To accompany white rice, Japanese curry can be made more or less spicy according to taste. Here is the recipe.

Step 01

Wash the rice well and when the water is clear, put it in a pan. Cover with 200 ml of water and cover with a lid.

When the water reaches boiling point, lower the heat to low and cook until the rice has absorbed all the water. Then strain it and set it aside.

Meanwhile, prepare the curry roux by melting the butter in a pan. Add the flour and curry, mix well, and when you have obtained a sticky mixture that will detach from the sides of the pot, turn off.

Step 07

Japanese curry roux

Add the roux to the curry and mix until you get a creamy and enveloping stew. Serve the curry with the rice and sprinkle with chopped chives and black sesame.


Choose a garam masala (curry) of the degree of spiciness you prefer or, alternatively, add dried or sliced chilli. You can prepare the Japanese curry in advance and reheat it at the time of serving.
