Such an interesting dish!!! Since I had never heard of Japanese Curry Roux, I googled and found a recipe (a few recipes, but this is the one I used ) on, was quite proud of making my own roux :) from there the rest of the recipe is so simple and interesting, also a lovely presentation. we enjoyed this unusual recipe, I will happily make this again. Incidentally the roux made exactly 50grams, but I did use a bit less, since my husband was the taster and felt it was sufficiently hot with about 30 gr. I could have have happily put in the full amount for me :) Made for Culinary Quest 2015 (Japan) for Lightbulbs On The Beach
