I finally felt inspired enough, and had the time & energy, to make the curry story! Yay! Here it is, starring Berry Hunter and a custom 23cm Obitsu, plus a plethora of Re-ment curry sets and other pieces (not to mention actual food)!

Japanese-style curry is a staple of Japanese family meals, beloved of Japanese kids everywhere. Japanese home-style restaurants even often have curry on the menu. As a kid, I remember reading a Japanese children's book featuring runaway onions that didn't want to get put into curry sauce. That was decades ago!

Oh, and, like a stew, this only gets better the second day! (The meat gets more tender, the flavors blend...)

(Yes, the dish almost certainly originated in India, but this particular variant got Japanified somewhere along the line.)

The below is a family variation of the recipe on a commercial curry package box.

YUMMIE! I wish we had SmelloVision here :)

Great lesson and photo story! I can imagine it took a little bit longer to do it than cooking the curry.
And for 5 people. Bah! I could eat it all :pig: :wink:

Hello melissa and elfinity! Thank you for your comments!

It's actually pretty easy to make; if you're curious you should try it!! I made it a bit more complicated than the package instructions because I like two things:

* Richer flavored sauce (hence the stock)

* Onion chunks, not just onion flavor (hence adding some onions at the end, so they don't all completely dissolve away)

This is really like making a simple beef stew (the watery kind) and just adding the sauce package "chocolate" lol. (But the curry really does have to be thoroughly mixed in!)

Oh and... there are usually mild, medium, and hot ones. If you prefer mild, go mild!!

I made curry recently too. :) I don't often use curry roux because a friend of mine is allergic to wheat, and most of the boxed roux contains it. Since she was over, I made my own roux using rice flour. Tasty and easy! If you don't have to worry about someone with gluten sensitivity, you can substitute regular flour for the rice flour.

Japanese Curry -- Gluten-Free!

* 2 Tbsp butter or olive oil
* 1-2 onions, thinly sliced
* 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
* 1 tsp grated garlic
* 2 Tbsp rice flour
* 1 Tbsp curry powder
* 2 1/2 c. chicken stock or beef stock
* 1/2 tsp garam masala
* 2 large carrots, peeled and diced
* 2 small-to-medium Yukon Gold potatoes, diced
* 1 lb chicken or beef, cut into 1" cubes

Sauté the onions in the butter or oil until the onions are caramelized and brown. Add the ginger, garlic, rice flour, and curry powder, and cook, stirring constantly, for about a minute. Add the broth, carrots, potatoes, and meat, and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies are cooked through and you can't wait any more. (; Serve over rice, with some pickled vegetables on the side.
