I created this dish when I was about 20 living in Okinawa and it is our very favorite curry. Okinawa is sub-tropical with beautiful beaches and no doubt the climate and the people inspired me to come up with this colorful one dish curry. If you are looking for authentic curry then this is not it. It's not Japanese curry either. What makes this dish so tasty besides the mild curry sauce is the addition of condiments of choice. You can use almost anything including cut up mango, papaya, pineapple, tomatoes, cucumber, toasted peanuts or pine nuts, chopped green onion, pepper, and shredded boiled eggs. This is our favorite curry!
