Vermont Curry

Vermont Curry

I wondered…could this box of Vermont Curry be better than the long timer S&B Golden Curry? Also, why is it called “Vermont” Curry?

These days there seems to be so many Japanese curry options when I check out places like Shirokiya, or even just the Asian food aisle at the supermarket. My mom has changed over from S&B to House brand Vermont Curry so I thought I’d also give it a try.

Vermont Curry

I made a simple chicken curry with mushrooms, onions, and eggplant.

It was really easy to make. First I cut up all the vegetables and a couple pieces of chicken into bite sized pieces. I cooked this up in a nonstick pan. Then followed the directions on the box adding water and the curry.

The only major change I made is that I used less curry than the recipe called for. I wanted to cut back on fat and sodium so I used around half of what it called for on the box.

While I assume it’s called Vermont Curry because of the “touch of apple and honey”, I can’t really taste those two items. But given that, I still think that this brand tastes very good. And even without using the full amount of curry, there was still lots of savory flavor!

Japanese style curry is one of my all time favorites and I enjoy trying new brands. I have added grated apples and/or honey to my curry before and enjoyed it. This chicken and eggplant curry looks good!

Hi noble pig,
Yup, it was really tasty!

Hi Kevin,
I’ll have to try adding actual grated apple and honey to my curry, sounds great! :)

It always puzzles me whenever I see any curry that is labelled mild, medium hot, very hot and/or whatever heat level is covered in the spectrum of “How hot do you like it?” 😉 Usually, it never turns out as hot as I expected.

Was it medium hot to your tastebuds?

Hey rowena,
I would say this dish came out mild (on the verge of mild-medium). It would have been hotter but I didn’t put in as much as I was supposed to according to the box. The overall taste was pretty good though! 😉

So which brand is better? I’ve never tried the Vermont Curry, I always just use the S&B brand and use a block of med-hot and hot.

Hey lauren,
I think I like this Vermont one better. Seems to be a little closer to Curry House taste to me. :)
