Japanese curry is traditionally made by cooking a roux (a mixture of flour and fat) with curry powder to make a thick and glossy sauce. Kuro (black) curry (most commonly made with beef) is made in a similar manner but turmeric and chilli powder are removed from the curry powder to eliminate any hint of yellow or red and seaweed (black laver), squid ink, dark chocolate or, as in this case coffee are added to make a striking black coloured sauce.

We’re serving the curry here with two types of pickle, furikake seasoned rice, coleslaw and soy marinated eggs.

Delicious, with or without the furikake seasoning! My partner had beef kuro curry which he said was lovely. I used tofu instead and it was also very tasty. We both really enjoyed this meal.
