Curry Bread and Curry Pan

curry pan

I made Curry bread which called Curry pan in Japanese.  Occasionaly, I crave to eat this bread.  It is very popular, so if you go to any Japanese bakary, you can find it easily (cost about $2 U.S. dollar).  If you had Curry and rice with Katsu (in my other page, they have a recipe), you will understand why this bread is so good.  I, personaly, think  sauce is very good with crunchy texture.  And if this is just came from the deep fryer, you would like to eat more than one, I almost garantee it!    When I made Curry, usually it doesn’t last long but sometimes I made too much and eat couple of day’s straight.  Then I feel  tired eating it.  Then, I use those left over curry to make this Bread.  If I am living in Japan, I won’t make this.  However, if you are living somewhere you can not easily buy Japanese bread, you have to make it.  For my opinion, it’s worth trouble making this recipe!

 What is Curry bread?

Curry bread (カレーパン karē pan), also called curry doughnut, is a popular Japanese food. An amount of Japanese curry is wrapped in a piece of dough, and the dough breaded in panko, and deep fried. On occasion it is baked instead of deep fried, but deep frying is the most common method of cooking. Curry bread is usually found in bakeries and convenience stores.

It is popular sweets in Japan. Recently getting more popular than when I was kid.
It is not popular sweets in U.S. and I can not find any shops and stores. I don’t think American people know about Rusk. So this is the explanation from Wikipedia.

A rusk is a hard, dry biscuit or a twice-baked bread. It is sometimes used as a baby teething food. In the UK, the name also refers to a wheat-based food additive.

German ZwiebackThe zwieback (lit. baked twice) is a form of rusk eaten in Germany.

[edit] GreeceThe term paximadi (Greek: παξιμάδι) covers various forms of Greek rusk, made commonly from barley or chickpea flour, and softened with wine, water or oil before eating. Paximadi form the basis of the Cretan snack dakos (Greek: ντάκος).

[edit] India, Pakistan and South AfricaIn India, Pakistan and South Africa, rusk is a traditional biscuit (also “Khasta” in Hindi, and beskuit in Afrikaans) that is eaten after having been dipped in coffee, tea, or rooibos tea.[1] Historically, rusks evolved (along with biltong) during the latter country’s early pioneering days as a way to preserve bread in the dry climate. It was also extensively used during times of war[2] or when traveling long distances.

Traditionally baked at home, but there are now several mass-market versions available, the most famous probably being Ouma Rusks. Many bakeries, delis and home industries sell them, often using more exotic ingredients than their mass-market counterparts. In addition to plain and buttermilk flavours, there are aniseed, wholewheat, condensed milk, muesli, and lemon poppyseed versions.
