Have you ever eaten curry?
Curry is very familiar and popular food in Japan. As you all know curry is typical Indian food using many types of spices.
In order to make Japanese curry you need curry roux which is made out of spices, flour, salt, sugar, oil and so on. Because of the flour Japanese curry is much thicker than Indian one.
It can be sweet depending on the king of roux, so sweet taste curry enable children to eat their dislike vegetables.
I think “Japanese curry” is one of the most loved Japanese food for all the children, adults, and elderly people. Although it’s usually eaten with white rice I want to try “creative” miso soup recipe with curry powder today!
Curry powder is totally different from curry roux; it’s just spices mix not including flour or sugar.
I actually never used curry mix with miso paste together, so I’m so excited to taste this new style curry soup!
【Recipe (2 servings)】
1 oz miso paste (fermented soybean paste)*1
1 teaspoon dashi granules*2
2 teaspoon curry powder
2.5 oz sliced pork belly, Cut into bite-sized
2.5 oz eggplant, Thinly sliced
0.7 oz (1 sheet) thin fried tofu, Cut into rectangles
1.7 cups (400ml) water
*1 Feel free to adjust the amounts of miso paste to your liking.
*2 If miso paste already contains dashi, don’t need dashi granules. I use miso paste containig dashi this time.
1. Heat water and eggplant in a saucepan.
2. Once eggplant gets soft, add pork and simmer until the color changed.
3. Add thin fried tofu, curry powder, and dashi granules. Simmer again for 2 min, and remove from heat.
4. Add miso paste and stir until miso is completely melted.
Ready to eat!
I can’t believe that how delicious this curry miso soup is!!
It’s definitely the best dish made with curry powder I’ve ever made.
