How to prepare instant Japanese Curry

by - 1/10/2016

Did you ever walk into a Daiso store and see all these Japanese microwavable food in an aisle? Well I've always wanted to try their Instant Curry or Microwavable curry! I was curious with what it would taste like or how accurate their instants would taste, and how different it would be with like a real cooked curry!

This is the brand I chose! There's two ways to prepare it, one with a microwave, and the other one would be heating it with boiling water. For the microwave, for a 500 W power,, first transfer it to a heat proof bowl, and heat it for 2 minutes. For a 600 W power microwave, do the same with the transfer, then heat it for 1 minute and 30 seconds. Simple right?

Now for this tutorial, I'm gonna be boiling it since I'm kinda lazy to transfer the condiments to a bowl (or rather I didn't know how many WATTS our microwave is... lol)

For this step, prepare a small pot, fill half of it with water, heat it up for about 1-2 minutes, put the packet in, and let it boil for another 3-5 minutes.

Remove the packet using maybe a tong or something, set it aside,  drain the water (BE SURE TO ASK AN ADULT IF YOU'RE YOUNG), and let the packet cool for about 1-2 minutes. (1 minute would be recommendable.)

Prepare a plate with rice on it, cut the packet open and pour the contents!

It's super plenty!! Well the sauce is haha! But there are still potatoes slices, carrot slices, and beef slices included!

Partner it with a glass of water, and a side of sliced fruits and VOILA! Your instant Beef Curry is done!


  • The taste is great! It actually tastes like my favorite Curry Cup Noodles!
  • It tastes like curry, sweet, and has this slight spicyness
  • The potato and carrot slices were soft, as well as the beef slices
  • There's a lot!! 
The only reason why I didn't give this 5 Hearts is because they could've added more potato, carrot, and beef slices, but overall, this was worth it!
Hopefully this post helped you in deciding whenever walking into Daiso~
Have a great day!!
