I have already talked about this recipe here in my blog. My parents like this special, lard-rich curry thickened with potatoes so much that I have decided to post the recipe.

1/2 Vermont Curry

Sorry, me again! I promise to stop asking so many questions soon.

Two questions:

1. Are these the correct curries? These are the only things I can here:

2. Can I use chicken or beef instead of prok? Just trying to experiment really.

Khash: I welcome any questions as long as they are relevant (laugh).

1. Yes, the correct brands, but not exactly the same types as mine.
I use the Karakuchi (Hot) type of these brands, not Chukara (Medium Hot).
The specific Vermont Curry product linked to is of powder type, not of block type, so you must make sure that the pot cools down to 90C or so before adding it to prevent it from being lumpy.

2. Yes! I like to use pork in curry myself, but any meat will do. Even seafood will do, too!

If you ever find the lard content overwhelming, just convert it to regular curry by adding another 700 ml water.

Great, thank you. I think I'll stick with medium rather than hot, I can't take too spicy!

Thanks for the tip on the powder curry and water dilution.

Good morning, Hiroyuki. Today, I'm going to make curry, but I did not buy it when I went to the Asian market, the cold arrived here great for Curry.

diu: You mean you went to the market to buy some curry roux and forgot to buy it? That sometimes happens to me, too!
