When East Meets West, It Is A New Cuisine….Japanese Curry Spaghettis



It was last night’s dinner and I wouldn’t have any luxury of time to take additional photos. Therefore, with the limited photos that I have taken, I will just share this extremely nice “one pot” noodle dish – JAPANESE CURRY SPAGHETTIS. I did not refer to any recipe when I cook this but before I cooked this, I have predicted that it would be a nice combination and this was confirmed by my wife after she took the first bite : “It is much better than spaghettis with tomato pasta sauce!”


I have a post on Japanese curry potato pie yesterday and I have some leftover Japanese curry cubes. When I read Travelling Foodies’s Spaghetti with Bacon and Leeks (Ree Drummond), I told Ms. Yen Simpson (the blog owner) that I like pasta but I do not like the cooking time. She assured me that it is very easy to cook and took her only 8 minutes to cook the spaghettis. I concluded that I will try to cook the spaghettis again and it ended up that I was cooking spaghettis with the leftover Japanese curry cubes.


Personally, I should say, this is a good combination. My kids were asking me when am I going to post this recipe in my blog because they wanted their cousins in Malaysia to try the spaghettis. They said that it was very nice. What they said were expected since they like noodles and Japanese curry sauce which was sweet and not spicy. That, however, should only be used as a reference and readers should try to prepare this and testify yourself if it is a nice combination.



Servings: About 4-5 Adults

All measurements are estimated and you can always add or minus or even substitute the ingredients to suit your family’s taste buds.


Must Haves

  • 400 grams of spaghettis (cooked using package’s instructions)

  • 2 medium sized onions (cut into small pieces)

  • 3 cups of water

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil or cooking oil.

Optional and Substitutable

  • 20 grams of slightly sweetened cooking chocolate

  • 4 chicken franks (cut in slices)

  • 1 small carrots (cut into cubes)

  • 150 grams of cauliflower (cut into smaller pieces)

  • 1 small packet of fresh mushrooms

  • 150 grams of minced meat

  • Some coriander leaves or Chinese celery for garnish.

  • Seasonings for taste.



Cooking the pasta


  • Cook spaghettis until desired texture and it is best to follow the instructions in the packaging to get best results. Every pasta will have different cooking time.


  • After cooking, drain away the water and put it in icy cold water for 3-4 minutes. Drain again and set aside for later use. The purpose of this step is to make the pasta more chewy rather than soggy.

Preparing the Japanese Curry Sauce and Assembly the dish


  • In a sauce pan, heat up some olive or cooking oil under high heat. Add in onion and stir fry until aroma start to emit. Add in broccoli, carrots, minced meat, chicken franks and mushrooms and stir fried for 1-2 minutes. Add in the water and let it simmer under medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add in Japanese curry cubes or Japanese curry sauces and let it simmer for another 2-3 minutes.


  • In order to “enhance” the colour and the sweetness of the curry, add in the cooking chocolate and let it melt into the sauce. Once the chocolate have melted, off the heat and add in some coriander leaves, if desired.

Theoretically, no condiment is needed but it is advisable that to take a spoon and taste whether the sauce suits your taste buds. Add additional seasonings if desired.


Assembly of the pasta


  • In a big serving plate, place some spaghettis on top of the plate and scoop some pasta sauce and place on top the spaghettis. Garnish with desired greens of choice such as fresh coriander leaves. Best served hot during meals.


This combination is fabulous and it is kids friendly. I do hope that readers can take a step out to try making the dish. If you can’t get ready made Japanese curry sauce, you can always used traditional curry sauce which can be slightly spicy. Remembers, the dish have full flexibility in the selection of ingredients that your family likes..
