Japan’s Halal Souvenir Review: Japanese Curry Roux

Hello again! Thank you for checking out my blog!

This time I’ll write a review about Halal snacks that I got from LAOX the other day.

Today I’ll share about Halal Japanese Curry Roux. Since I can’t eat it without cook it first, I’ll also share the recipe.


  • Onion, slice thinly
  • Carrot, cut into bite size
  • 2 potatoes, cut into bite-size
  • 2 boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size
  • Curry roux 1,5 block
  • Vegetable oil, just for the saute
  • Salt for taste
  • Approximately 550ml of water

They do have the cooking instruction on the back of the packaging.


So, let’s cook some curry!!

First, caramelize the onion.

It takes a while, so watch it carefully so the onion won’t get burned.

I forgot to take a picture of caramelized onion, sorry huhu.

After that, at potatoes and carrot. You have to stir it constantly so it won’t get burn. After 2 or 3 minutes, at the chicken thigh. You may add the water after the chicken turn color.

Add the water based on the amount of other ingredients

Based on my experience, DO NOT chop the curry roux block. Just toss it into the water the way it is. Afer adding the curry roux into the water, stir it continuously and make sure there’s no lump in it.

If you find the curry too thick, just add some water based on your preference

Yeay, it’s done~

You can eat the curry with rice, or just pour it on top of boiled udon. Also, you can also change the chicken with beef or seafood. If you’re a vegetarian, just add more veggies!

As for the taste I think it’s good, but I need to add chili powder because it’s not spicy at all. I give 8.5/10 for the score.

Thank you for reading till the end! Please let me know how it turns out when you cook it!


  1. Assalamualaikum, how do you know that the roux is halal? i’ve been wanting to eat japanese curry, but the roux halal status is always an issue here.

  2. Hai. I just bought japanese curry brand S&B Golden Curry (yellow packaging). Is it halal? And there is another one with same brand and packaging stated contain gelatin.

    1. Hi! I’m very very very sorry for the belated reply. As far as I know, this curry roux is the only one that is safe for muslim. If you want other curry roux, better to look for vegetarian and without alcohol ones. Hope this will help!
