Curry That Sat Overnight/一晩寝かせたカレー

It is often said that curry that sat overnight tastes better.

So, my lunch today:
The pickle at the center is fukujin zuke.

Last night, I put the leftover curry in the fridge.
Curry can go bad more quickly that you'd imagine, especially if it sits at room temperature.

After you put the curry in the fridge overnight, does it get congeal (the sauce gets thicker and lumpy) and also less shiny? That's what happens to my curry. I add water, but it is never as shiny as the first day.

Tea Apprentice: Yes, it does get thicker and lumpy. To reheat the whole batch, I often add some water to prevent scorching, but when I reheat in the microwave, I don't have to add water.

It is less shiny when cold, of course, but I think it will become as shiny when reheated.
