  • This recipe is based on using the Thermos® Shuttle Chef® TCRA-3000. You may adjust the ingredient quantities based on the capacity of the Shuttle Chef®.


  • Do not mix the Japanese curry paste when bringing contents to a boil to avoid potential burn when the roux sinks to the bottom of the pot.
