Recipe: Simple Japanese Curry and "Doria"

This is something I will call “Traditional” “Japanese” Curry. It’s simple, quick and easy. Almost all Japanese kids learn this at some point when they are in elementary school.


  • Japanese Curry Roux – 2 boxes (Depends on what you get)
  • Beef – 3 slices of steak (or any other meat of your choice)
  • Onion – 2 medium size
  • Potato – 3 medium size
  • Carrot – 2 large size
  • Rice

* Amount of the ingredients really doesn’t matter. Use what you’ve got, and use as much as you want!


  1. Cut each ingredients to a large bite size
  2. In a large pot, heat oil (I used Garlic Olive Oil)
  3. Put the beef, brown all side, then put onion and carrots and cook outside.
  4. Add enough water to cover the ingredients and bring to boil, while taking the form from the meat
  5. Once potato is fully cooked, add curry roux. (Adjust the amount of the roux based on how much water you put in the pot)
  6. Serve with hot rice (I like it better with slightly harder rice)

Now, there always have leftover curry, and here’s the recipe of a dish called “Doria”. This is a Au Gratin with Japanese twist, using rice. Oven cook rice covered with white sauce and cheese. In this recipe, I used curry instead of the white sauce.


  • Leftover curry
  • Leftover rice
  • Egg (1 per person)
  • Cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. In a oven safe bowl (individual portion), put a little oil
  3. Put rice, then curry on top
  4. Make a indentation in center, drop an egg and sprinkle cheese
  5. Plae the bowl in middle rack, and cook for 20-30 min, until the egg is cooked to your liking
