Japanese Dry Curry

Zojirushi Recipe – 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!
