Then let's put this in abowl.

Smells curry smell.

Look at this color is very yellow.

half a cup water.

And mix.

We have really thickyellow kind of mixture.

I will use two tablespoons ofunsalted butter.

Long time ago when I madethis, my kare-rice, I always used margarine at the time.

But when I used butter, theflavor's much, much better.

So I'm going to usebutter.

Two tablespoons.

Use medium-high heat.

Add pork.

I'm going to stir-fry around a couple of minutes until pork is no longer pink.

And then, after that, I'mgoing to add this potato.

And then potato.

I'm going to stir thisfor a couple of minutes until potato looks little half translucent.

And then carrot and onion.

When me and my friends wenthiking we always reserved Okay, you bring some vegetables.

You bring some make itcold like some meat.

And then, okay, I'll bring my pot.

We need at least liketwo pots, large pots.

One pot is making rice.

The other pot, large pot, we just make.

And all together.

One person is cutting.

One person is washing.

(laughs) Keep stirring so that it's not burning.

And then I think we can add water here.

This is two and half cups water.

I'm going to turn down the heat to medium.

And then cook 10 to 12 minutesuntil potatoes are really well-cooked and also allthe carrots are tender.

Then I"m going to add this curry mixture.

And stir this.

When you see this thickened because the powder has some starch.

I want to tell you, when you eat this definitely eat with kimchi.

Between your curry rice scoop crispy sweet sour kimchi really go well together.

Whenever I taste my curry rice, actually I was talkingabout this in my cookbook, I can't help thinkingabout my grandmother.

She's a wonderful cook.


She's my hero.


One day in my high-schoolday I made this curry rice.

That was kind of new food at the time.

Grandmother taste it forthe first time in her life.

She was so shocked.

Wow! What is it? So delicious.

What is it? Oh my.

My granddaughteris number one cook! She really enjoyed thiscurry rice that I made.

So whenever I make thisI'm thinking about her.

I miss her.

She already passedaway long, long time ago.

Enjoy my recipe.
