Japanese Curry: A Bento in shades of Brown


Faced with a craving for Japanese curry and a lackluster serving of Katsu Curry from a local Japanese fast food, I had no recourse but to cook my own. Fortunately, thanks to a large block of S & B Golden Curry #5, I’m able to churn out consistently yummy Japanese karee whenever I want some. My craving not quite cured by dinner, I packed some leftovers for lunch.

Karee Raisu Bento

Bento #148 • 27 July 2007

Contents:
• Japanese Curry over rice. Pork chunks, potatoes, and carrots cooked in S & B Golden Curry Roux. How to coming soon in another post, I just need to organize the pics and do the write-up.

• Chocolate Mallows

• Mangorind. A yummy chewy candy that’s a mix of mango & tamarind. It’s the usual sour sampaloc (tamarind) candy we grew up with, with a sweet twist of dried mango. Very addictive.

• Homemade crostini and Jalapeno Hummus. We were all out of pita at home, but luckily, I spotted a bag of frozen Ciabatta. I sliced thinly then toasted until crisp. I loved the Wild Garden Hummus. It was smooth and creamy, with a very distinct hummus taste that wasn’t drowned by lemon or any other flavors. The Jalapeno gave it a nice kick, but I have to admit, it overpowered me eventually, specially because I love spreading hummus on thick. Next time, I’m going to try the Sundried Tomato kind.

Yes, it’s all brown right? Still, the monochromatic tone doesn’t mean bland at all. Despite the absence of color, this was one flavorful and satisfying lunch. Success success, yay!

    I do not like curries but yours still looks mighty tasty. I am less of a fan due to the distinctive smell curry has. The chocolate marshmallow sounds sooooooooo good, are they similar to American mallomar bars? I am not sure of the spelling, ive only had them once or twice but very yummy! I don’t want to develop too big of a sweet tooth!lol

    Hindi naman, depende sa mood 😀 At sa sipag, hehe.

    @lalalady7
    I’m not familiar with Mallomar bars but what I like about Chocolate Mallows is that it’s not overpoweringly sweet. I can actually eat a couple before I get tired of them. Plus, the childhood treat factor always makes it doubly pleasurable.

    @dementedchris
    Screw gulay, GIVE ME FOOD! =)) Pero oy, may carrots at potatoes yan 😛

    S&B Japanese Curry is the best instant dish I’ve ever made. Whenever I have the time to make it, I always use the whole curry roux because if I don’t make a 12-15 serving meal, there won’t be enough left for me. My family just eats it all up in one day XD.
