Curry rice is a fabulous nearly-instant meal—perfect for our French class/kendo practice nights. Even better, it makes tons of food, so we have lots left for lunch/dinner the next day. To make the dish, you just boil veggies in a big pot of water and then dissolve pre-made curry sauce cubes. Then the sauce and veggies are served steaming hot (as shown in the picture!) over rice. We usually use potatoes, carrots, and white onions. Yusuke also added bok choy this time. Our soup was miso with tofu, green onions, and seaweed.

Curry dishes are extremely popular in Japan: there’s even a wikipedia article on the subject, naturally. The cubes vary in spiciness, and I think we usually have a medium one. The curry is not hot at all in the way it would be in Indian cuisine, but there’s a sweetness mixed with the spice that I find lick-the-bowl addictive.

Also, please note the cute cat bowl. Yusuke bought these (one pink, one blue) at a Korean store near our apartment, since they match dishes that his sister has in Japan. (Aww, gee.)
