Glico curry mix - Curry should not smell like ramen and look like fake meat ice cubes

Glico curry prepackaged curry mix canada

Being from a place where curry isn’t a daily dish or even a yearly dish, having prepackaged curry sauces was rather foreign for me.

I thought when I opened it, there would be an overwhelming smell of curry spice. After all, it’s curry, right?

(Yes, the fork fell all the way in, oops)

Instead, it smelled like cheap chicken ramen noodle seasoning packets. *gasp!* I was not expecting that.

(I really need to remember not to take pictures under the stove overhead light.)

Nor was I expecting to watch it broken into blocks that waivered back and forth between looking like fake meat and funky colored ice cubes.  Weird.

Fortunately, a half hour later, it was completely transformed, both in appearance and taste/texture.

See that? Absolutely delicious. Full of rich, spicy, curry flavor, and not even a faint whiff of ramen noodle smell. The best part was that there was no need to adjust the seasoning or deal with finicky thickeners to pull it together. If you have access to Glico curry mix, give it a go!

I'm making it right now for the first time. I panicked when you described the first look/smell of the Glico curry cubes (I'm using the hot version) but felt better when I read the next few lines. Thank you for making me feel better about the whole process. :)
