Okara Dry Curry

Okara Dry Curry

I made curry with okara, which I've been hooked on I used a minimum amount of ingredients and kept the cooking time short to make a one-person lunch. This curry only took me 20 minutes.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Fresh okara
100 g
Onions (finely chopped)
Carrot (finely chopped)
a small amount
1 tablespoon +
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon +
Japanese-style curry roux (store-bought)
2 blocks
about 200 ml


1. Heat vegetable oil (not listed) in a skillet and sauté the chopped onion and carrots. Sprinkle on some salt and sauté the vegetable over low heat to bring out their flavor.
2. Once the onion and carrots are tender, pour in the water and bring it to a boil. Add the ketchup and the store bought curry roux and mix well.
3. Once the curry roux has dissolved, add the okara and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Add the soy sauce at the end. If the taste is still on the lighter side, add ketchup and soy sauce to adjust the taste.
5. Serve with rice and enjoy.
