Japanese curry, or curry rice, is composed of meat, potatoes, carrots, and onions in a rich and flavorful curry sauce. Curries were introduced to Japan in the 19th century and are today one of the most popular dishes in the country. We use premade curry roux in this recipe, which is a delicious shortcut used in many Japanese home kitchens. We love Vermont brand curry, which can be purchased online or in speciality stores, but any Japanese curry roux will work. Serve your curry with short grain rice and pickled ginger.
