Hiiiii, it has been a while since the last time AnakJajan post recipe blog post 🙂 This time we will share easy yet tasty Japanese Curry Rice Recipe. Besides restaurant/cafe and travel blog posts, we usually love to share recipe blog post too, you can see list of our recipe post here https://anakjajan.com/category/type/homecook-recipe/

Some Japanese food are super easy to cook, for example Japanese Curry Rice is one of the easiest one, you just need to buy the sauce mix, put it on a pan with water, meat and vegetable then voila a portion of thick delicious Japanese Curry rice is ready to be served.

Actually AnakJajan shared Japanese Curry Rice recipe two years ago on our blog, but this time I made my curry cute.

AnakJajan always love to see pinterest and instagram, one of the main reason is because some of the posts can be quite inspiring, we recently saw some posts from a cafe/restaurant abroad serving their curry rice with panda rice ball, so we thought why not try making our own at home.

The most important thing from this dish is Curry Mix Sauce, usually a small box of curry sauce (125gr) cost you around IDR 30-40k per box, and each box can be used to cook around 4-5 portions of curry rice, imagine how much a portion of Curry Rice at restaurant usually cost??

AnakJajan usually use Golden Curry brand you can see the packaging from our last post two years ago but this time we tried Vermont Curry with a touch of apple and honey and medium spicy level (3 of 5). You can easily find this kind of Japanese curry mix sauce at any supermarket.

If you want your rice ball easier to make and tastier, you can buy Japanese rice, but if you don’t have, AnakJajan have a tips for you, you can try mixing glutinous rice with normal rice with a ratio of 1 glutinous rice : 5 rice (example, 50gr of glutinous rice : 250gr of rice), mix the rice and then cook it, in the end you will get a sticker rice texture like Japanese rice.

That’s the basic of curry rice recipe, you can add additional ingredients based on your preference such as chicken/ beef or maybe katsu or melting cheese on top your curry rice. Super easy rite? Let’s cook!!
