Japanese Curry Shrimp Tofu and Vegetables

18 Mar

Cooking curry with instant curry cube isn’t the most authentic Japanese curry, but it is a decent trade-off between taste versus speed and ease of preparation.


  • 6 tiger shrimps
  • 1 pack of fried tofu (6 oz), cubed
  • 2 garlics, finely chopped
  • 2 small potatoes, cubed
  • 1/2 lb broccoli, cubed
  • 1 small carrot, cubed
  • 1 red bell pepper, cubed
  • 2 tomatoes, cubed
  • 2 small onions, cubed
  • 1 box of curry cubes
  • 4 cups of water


  1. Heat oil in a skillet over high heat.  Stir in shrimps.  Sprinkle salt and pepper.  Cook for 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  2. Add oil to the skillet.  Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant.  Add potatoes, tofu, and carrots; cook for a few minutes.  Transfer them to a pot with 4 cup of waters and cook for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a skillet and cook the onions, peppers, broccoli and tomatoes. Cook for few more minutes and add salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer the vegetables to the pot.  Add curry cubes, stir to mix well.  Cook for 15 minutes.
  5. Stir in shrimps to the curry, cook for 5 minutes and serve with rice.

    Could you please specify in grams exactly how much this box of curry cubes is supposed to be? The box seems to say 8 oz from what I can read, but I just need to be sure. Also, I have yellow curry powder. Can I substitute your curry cubes for it? If so, how much of the curry powder should I use?

    From what I can see in your picture, I think you forgot to include red bell pepper in your list of ingredients. At least, there is something that looks redder than a tomato in the bowl pictured that contains the other vegetables.
