Japanese curry has become a household favorite since its inception. With influence and origins from British curry powder and Indian curries, Japanese curry is classified as a yoshoku dish, which is a Western-style food that has been changed to fit in with Japanese tastes. Japanese curry roux is savory and tasty, often with a bit of spicy bite to it as well, and is generally served with bright pink pickled ginger. Match some Japanese curry with a crunchy, juicy piece of tonkatsu, perfectly deep-fried pork cutlet, and you get an incredibly delicious staple dish known as katsu kare! Japanese katsu curry rice is said to have been invented in 1918 in Asakusa, almost a century ago!
Katsu curry rice is a delicious dish in Japan which combines these 3 key elements of tonkatsu and curry roux served over a bed of fluffy rice. A dish that’s loved by the young and old, katsu curry rice is served in homes and restaurants throughout Japan.
