Today, I’d like to share with you how to make Japanese pork curry from Haikyu!! Season1 Episode11. (The anime character Tobio Kageyama’s favorite dish is a pork curry!!)
Japanese style curry is made with a variety of vegetables and meats along with sauces. The basic ingredients are onions, carrots, and potatoes, with your choice of beef, pork, chicken, or seafood. Curry made with these common ingredients is very popular in Japan.
Easy recipe for Homemade Curry Roux from Scratch
In Japanese families, curry sauce is usually made using instant curry roux in block or powder form, which contains curry powder, flour, oil, and various seasonings. Due to the ease of preparation and the wide variety and availability of instant curry mixes, curry rice is very easy to make and is gaining popularity compared to other Japanese dishes. However, instant curry roux is surprisingly expensive overseas, so I have developed the homemade curry roux recipe over the years!

You can make the roux while the curry ingredients are simmering.
There are many types of curry, such as curry with pork cutlet on top of curry rice, or soup curry in the form of a soup without thickening. The curry in Anime, Haikyu!!, is not detailed from the video, but it looks like a very simple curry.
Recommended toppings for Japanese Pork Curry
My recommendation for curry toppings is definitely the egg. The spiciness of the curry and the mildness of the egg are a perfect match. Here is the link to the recipe for ramen egg which is surprisingly easy to make and it goes great with curry.

To Cook the Curry
- Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat and sauté the onions until they become translucent and tender.
