History of curry in Japan
Curry is one of the most popular lunch dishes in Japan.
Curry originated in Indian cuisine and was brought to Japan from India by the British.
Curry was introduced to Japan during the Meiji period (1870s), when the Indian subcontinent was under the colonial rule of the British Empire.
And it became a food of the Japanese diet.
In early 20th century curry was used by the Japanese Navy and Army, that curry began to gain popularity among the Japanese.
After being well received by the Japanese Army and Navy, curry began to be served in school lunches.
Then by the 2000s, curry was more frequently eaten than sushi or tempura.
5000 curry restaurants
Today, it is said that there are about 5,000 restaurants specializing in curry throughout Japan.
Yes it’s truly the national dish of Japan.
Japanese curry character
Unlike Indian curry, Japanese curry is made by simmering vegetables, potatoes, and meat together with a roux.
Another reason for its popularity is that it can be easily prepared at home using a block of roux.
Caraisu curry restaurant
This curry restaurant, Caraisu is run by a couple in downtown Osaka.
There are many kinds of dishes on the menu, and I have been going there for about 30 years, but I never get tired of it.
On this day, I had curry with fried chicken on the bone and fried sausage.
