Japanese BIR?
« on: March 16, 2024, 04:26 PM »
Me and the missis are off to Japan next month and in her extensive research she read that Japanese Indian restaurant curry is just like BIR.  I was already looking forward to the culinary experience but now, I have the chance to try vindaloo in a country I’d never have considered. Pity I have to fly 14 hours though.

My only experience of Japanese curry is this paste, which makes a perfect sauce like I used to get in Chinese takeaways in the UK. The extra hot version is very good.

Although I have visited Japan at least twice, I don't think that on any occasion I set out to eat Indian food when there, nor do I remember ever eating the same in Japan, even by chance, so I am not in a position to confirm or deny the hypothesis that Japanese Indian cuisine might in any way resemble BIR.  But if it does, I will be mildly surprised.

I’ve been a couple times on business but this is just over 2 weeks vacation, hitting 6 cities. I honestly think there’ll be so much to enjoy of Japanese food, I may not even think about Indian like I do here.  Looking forward to Japanese curry very much.

Well, yes, it was certainly Japanese cuisine that I ate while I was there (but not Japanese curries ...) but please do make sure that if you eat fugu your chef possesses one of these !

Golden Curry is my go to when I cook Curried Prawns and Rice.  I love it. It is the nearest I can get to my favoured dish from the 1970s at our local Chinese Restaurant.  I have also, quite successfully, made and used the copycat roux and curry powder.
