Here we have another bento for The Boy. On the day I made this, I had something similar only with more broccoli and less yummy yummy curry. If my memory serves me right, this night I used Vermont Curry. I’m sad to say that I have yet to develop a real preference when it comes to curry mixes. Right now I have only been using Japanese brands like Golden, Java, and Vermont. One of these days I am going to have to take better notice and make note of the one I like best. Spicier the better if you ask me. Now if there was only some way to make this less horrible for me.

Chicken Curry

For those of you who might not be that familiar with Japanese curry, making the curry itself couldn’t be easier. Brown meat of choice in pan, add veggies and water, boil until cooked, add curry mix. It’s so easy in fact that I remember this old gag in the Sailor Moon amine where they claimed she was so inept at cooking that she couldn’t even make boxed curry. Well, I guess princesses from the Moon have more important things to do like talking her cats and flirting with a strange masked man who kept throwing these sharp roses at her…you know, cause he liked her. And I mean liked her liked her.

Oh, and in case anyone out there is interested to know why curry has become such a commonplace dish in Japan, I recommend checking out this article on the Vermont Curry website.
