Japanese Dry Curry

Japanese Dry Curry contains less liquid than the widely popular Japanese Curry, and can be prepared in a shorter time. The ingredients are heated to reduce moisture, allowing the meat and veggies to be coated in the tasty curry seasoning – it’s the perfect accompaniment to rice! Add more curry powder for an extra kick!

Ingredients (serves 4):
To Cook in the Rice Cooker:

  • 2 cups (rice measuring cup) short or medium grain white rice
  • Water to fill to water level 2 for 'WHITE RICE"
