Japanese Style Curry Rice

Hello there, welcome to my new posting!

I was complaining about using heater in Sep the other day, which I never did when I was in LA. But now, I again realized I have moved to far North because it was snowy the other day.


I haven’t seen it for years. No wonder it was super cold even though I curled up in bed. Some say if it is snow, that day is actually warmer than other cold day, but I would never want to feel that. All I want to say is: where is my sunshine and ocean with white sand!?

Anyways, for those cold day, people (ad Tanooki) need nice warm dish to stay comfortable. But recently I feel just warm dish is not enough. Something spicy is so much appreciated.

And now, I realized I haven’t written about Japanese traditional curry, which is the most familiar type of curry for me.

For the ingredients, some people would face difficult situation because I don’t know the japanese curry mix is available in your local. But if you can, you will have another great meal time for sure because this is one of the most popular food in Japan just like ramen!
