Kare Pan, aka Japanese curry bread, is filled with a delicious savory curry filling, covered by soft fluffy bread, and coated with crispy panko. It’s one of the most common pastries seen in many Japanese bakeries and “conbini” which means convenience stores in Japanese. If you love Japanese curry, then you’ll absolutely love this. Which, by the way, I do have a delicious Japanese curry recipe! If you haven’t seen that recipe yet, what are you waiting for? Click here to check it out. Go on, I’ll wait. Trust me, you won’t regret it.
As I’ve mentioned above, these are very popular in Japan. If you’ve ever been to Japan you know that their convenience stores are the best. Not only do they have yummy snacks and drinks, but they also have fresh made meals that you can take home. They also have a “hot” shelf where you can find these curry pans. Meaning, they are always warm when you want a quick bite to eat. Japanese convenience stores are just so great, I don’t think I can express enough just how great they are. You’ll have to take my word on it. Obviously Japan is more than just it’s convenience stores, there is so much more history and culture, but I won’t get into it here.
If you think this is a complicated recipe, it really isn’t. It’s actually fun and quite easy to make. The best part about this recipe is that this is the best way to use up any leftover curry you have, and it’s the perfect to-go snack. You can pick one up whenever the craving strikes, morning, noon, after midnight, or even as you’re pacing the kitchen. My husband and my brother finished these up quickly, they absolutely loved it. They literally couldn’t keep their hands off them!
