Children and adults alike in Japan love kare raisu. Introduced to Japan in the Meiji era (1868-1912) after passing through Great Britain from India..

The curry, made by sauteing vegetables and meat, boiling them until soft, and adding a curry roux (a paste made of curry powder and flour, used to thicken the soup), is poured over a plate of white rice. Easy to prepare, it is a frequent item on the household dinner table.

A plate of pork curry costs 400 yen and beef curry 580 yen.

Other ingredients can be added for an additional charge, including croquettes, hamburger patties, breaded pork cutlet, cheese, and raw egg
