Japanese-Style Curry

I’ve been using this Golden Curry sauce mix for at least a decade now and I must say, it’s fuckin fire. I usually find it at Walmart, but while visiting family in California, I stopped by Daiso and wouldn't you know, a whole ass Golden Curry section. I was surprised to see that the mix I use, came in different heat-levels ranging from mild to extra spicy. They also sold a ready-to-use, pour-over sauce, in the entire range of spice levels offered.


If the mix is inaccessible in your area, you can order on Amazon, but be sure to pay attention to the spice level indicated on the product listing. I stick to mild and medium because I don’t have a very high spice tolerance. My 4 year old loves the mild, and can eat it with no problem. There isn’t even a hint of spice in that one. To add extra kick at the end, I like using a Japanese seasoning blend called togarashi.


Overall cook time will depend on the type of meat you choose to use, or if you choose to even use meat at all. You can certainly make an all-veggie curry. It'd be just as delicious.
