House Java Curry

Curry rice seasoning mix

The tastiest Japanese curry rice seasoning mix around!

House Curry makes a variety of seasoning mixes, primarily for the Japanese market, but they market quite a few here in the States at markets like Marukai and even in some American supermarkets.  Being a huge curry rice fan, I have tried several brands but the House Java Curry mix (preferably in hot or "karakuchi") takes the prize for tastiest and the closest flavor I've found to the hot Japanese curry I remember eating in Japan.  Just saute your favorite meat with some veges and potatoes, pour in 5 cups water and simmer for 20 minutes.  Add the seasoning mix; it is packaged like a chocolate bar, with prescored cubes that you break off according to how many servings you are making.  Simmer for another 10 or 15 minutes and serve over freshly steamed Japanese rice.  If you have any "fukujinzuke"  (sweet red Japanese pickles) serve those on the side.  It is the perfect comfort meal.  Our kids adore this stuff!  The only reason I give House Java Curry a 4 instead of a 5 is because it contains MSG, but there is very little way around that stuff when using Japanese seasonings.  When the Japanese catch a clue and start making it without that nasty chemical, I will give it a 5!
