quote
Curry (カレー, karē) is one of the most popular dishes in Japan. It is commonly served in three main forms: curry rice (カレーライス, karē raisu), karē udon (thick noodles) and karē-pan (bread. Curry rice is most commonly referred to simply as 'curry' (カレー, karē).

A wide variety of vegetables and meats are used to make Japanese curry. The basic vegetables are onions, carrots, and potatoes. For the meat, beef, pork, chicken and sometimes duck are the most popular, in order of decreasing popularity. Katsu-karē is a breaded deep-fried pork cutlet with curry sauce.

Curry was introduced to Japan during the Meiji era (1869 - 1913),
at a time when India was under the administration of the British. The dish became popular and available for purchase in supermarkets and restaurants in the late 1960s. It has been adapted since its introduction to Japan, and is so widely consumed that it can be called a national dish.
As curry rice was introduced to Japan via English cuisine, it was originally considered to be Western cuisine.

original curry (オリジナルカレー, orijinaru karē), Japanese style

Curry sauce (カレーソース, karē sōsu) is served on top of cooked rice to make curry rice. Curry sauce is made by frying together curry powder, flour and oil, along with other ingredients, to make roux (ルー, rū); the roux is then added to stewed meat and vegetables, and then simmered until thickened. Adding potatoes to curry sauce was introduced by William S. Clark of the Sapporo Agricultural College, due to rice shortages at the time.

While curry roux and curry sauce are strictly speaking not the same, many people do not distinguish between the two, and it is common for people to ask for 'extra roux' (ルー増し, rū mashi) when ordering extra curry sauce in restaurants.

Instant curry roux カレールー was first sold in powder form by House Foods in 1926, and in block form by S&B Foods in 1956.

Vacuum-sealed curry sauce, prepared by heating the pouch in hot water or the microwave, is also popular.

Soup curry — a spicy slurp of Hokkaido
By KRIS KOSAKA

Ask a group of Sapporo locals to name their favorite soup curry and stand back as the conversation flames. With literally hundreds of popular shops — from out-of-the-way nooks that close when the pot empties to Sapporo-only giants such as Samurai or Lavi Lavi — this spicy Hokkaido specialty ignites loyalties across the prefecture. While summer draws to a close here as the rest of Japan withers in the lingering heat, kindle your own appetite with some bitingly refreshing Sapporo cuisine.

Soup curry first appeared on Sapporo menus in the early 1970s, but it wasn't until Magic Spice opened the first soup curry restaurant in 1993 that the boom officially started. Most shops follow the same basic recipe: a thin Indian- or Asian-style spicy soup heaped with fresh Hokkaido vegetables, served alongside rice. Patrons choose their level of spiciness, the size of their rice portion and their preferred curry base, ranging from lamb (Hokkaido's specialty) to chicken, seafood or vegetable. Traditional Indian lassi (yogurt drink) usually completes the fusion.

Blue Slime Curry

This is actually "Slime Curry." It's going on sale in Japan this month. Obviously, it is supposed to evoke a Slime from Dragon Quest.
