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.
â€¢ 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.
â€¢ 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.
â€¢ 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!
