Sonoko Sakai Japanese Curry Powder $16.95


Traditionally used to make Kare raisu (curry rice), Japanese curry came to the country from other parts of Asia by way of Britain.

It soon became a hearty dish popular with the Japanese military and soon grew to be a beloved comfort food for all. The mild curry gets a kick from palate-pleasing spices such a cinnamon, cardamom and cayenne and is a cozy and aromatic blend to elevate any dish.

Not sure how you’d use it?

We test everything we sell. Here’s how we’d use this.


Incorporate into a rub for meat, bloom with other aromatics when sauteeing, or perhaps stir into a soup. Combine with butter or ketchup to craft a condiment with a kick, or add to entrees like our Japanese-Style Beef Curry—substituting the curry powder in place of the garam masala.
