This week, we are cooking an Asiatic recipe, that is to say, the famous Curry rice.
There are several versions of the dish and each one has its own particularity.
Curry is a spice from the Indian subcontinent and its name comes from the Tamil word 'kari'
meaning 'a sauce or relish for rice'.
However, it is also a typical and rather common dish in Japan. In fact, curry was exported from India by the British during the Meiji era (between 186 and 1912).
The biggest differences between Japanese and Indian curries are colour and consistency. While Indian curry can differ a lot in terms of texture, from thin and soup-like to very dense, Japanese curry is usually thicker and gravy-like.
There are other differences too, but today we want to focus on something else, on the fact that whatever version you decide to make, it will still be delicious.
Another special feature of Curry Rice is that you can make it either with meat, vegetarian or completely vegan!
We tried it vegan and must admit that the result was so good that we regretted not making more for a second serving. So checkout the recipe for 2 people, but take also into account that curry is addictive, so you'll want more for sure!
