Baked Japanese Curry Rice

 
While Baked Japanese Curry Rice may sound lengthy and a mouthful, the steps to preparing this delicious meat sauce rice dish are really easy and straightforward. Since each and every family member of my family loves cheese, we went town with the mozzarella cheese topping.

The quintessential ingredient in Japanese curry rice is the curry sauce mix. Also known as curry roux, it usually comes in a block and they are widely available at the Japanese section in supermarkets. The few common brands are S&B and House. There are different heat and spicy level to choose from.
