While Indian and Thai curries often reign supreme, Japanese curry is more of a discrete national treasure. Japanese curry often differs from its other counterparts - amongst other traits, it's thicker and has a more of a milder flavour. It ranges from mild to hot, and is often cooked alongside potatoes, carrot, onion and various types of meat, which gives the dish its unique flavour which is traditionally sweet.

Often referred to as Curry Rice, this is the perfect go-to meal which doesn't require any pre-planning, and tastes even better the next day!

Curry was first introduced to Japan in the late 1800's, and was originally made as a stew and mixed with curry powder for extra flavour. The dish then evolved and adapted curry to the traditional Japanese version - Kare Raisu, which is the curry we know and love today. Japanese Curry is usually served with rice, and is less spicier than Indian curries which make it more suitable for younger children.

Make Japanese Curry Rice at home with the Asian Home Gourmet Japanese Curry Paste, and you can have this popular dish ready in just minutes! Swap the rice in favour of bread or noodles and add some vegetables to put your own twist on this authentic Japanese dish.
