I made the kare raisu (Japanese curry with rice) for dinner. O.M.G... It was SO tasty! I loved it.
I made it loosely following Maki's recipe. Except, I'll admit I was too lazy to make my own curry roux, and used the S&B brand Golden Curry, the "hot" variety (which wasn't hot at all).
My kare is a vegetarian version, with a can of soy beans rather than meat.
It was still quite watery towards the end of cooking, so I thickened it by cooking a tablespoon of flour in a tablespoon of melted butter. When the flour has been cooking for about a minute, you stir though a cup of the sauce from the curry. Then stir the whole mixture into the curry. It thickened my curry almost instantly.

- Make kare raisu for dinner - 90 minutes
- Cook rice in rice cooker - 30 minutes
- Place cooled curry and rice in bento box - 2 minutes
- Remove peel from orange and place in bento box with chocolate mousse - 5 minutes
