Japanese style curry was first introduced in Japan in 1872 (the 5th year of the Meiji era) and was introduces as a western dish from Great Britain. The recipe was introduced in the book “Guide to Western cuisine 西洋料理指南”.

The curry that is introduced in Japan is completely from the original Indian curry.  The main difference is Japanese curry uses flour whereas Indian curry does not. The curry roux in Japan is mostly in a block that is easy to use and these are some halal curry roux blocks.
