Recipe Notes

The instructions are for two different types of cooking methods. You can cook it on the stove top, or you can cook them in a slow-cooker.

**For a creamy curry substitue 1 a can of coconut milk in place of 1 can of chicken broth.*It's not part of a Traditional Japanese Curry, but it makes it deliciously creamy.

PRESSURE COOKER: Follow crock pot instructions, cook on stew/soup setting for 1 hour. Cook rice separately, or empty pot and cook rice in pot after your curry has cooked.
