For the Curry Sauce, you may get S&B or other brands of rue to make cooking easier.
Every home cook in Japan uses that to save more time and get the same satisfaction regarding the taste. You may even choose the intensity of heat/spice.

You may adjust how rich you want your sauce as you can split the rue in cubes. Mix it with 1 cup of water and 2 cans of vegetable juice (adjust as desired).

For the vegetables, you may use onion, garlic, ginger, carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, eggplant, zucchini, red bell pepper, green bell pepper (cut in triangular bite size ).

For a much simpler method:

  1. Finely chop onions 100g, garlic 2 cloves, and ginger 1 fragment same as the garlic. You may add pepper flakes according to your desired heat.

  4. Add preferred vegetables, laurel and mix well.
  5. Add water and vegetable juice or tomato juice. Boil until veggies are tender. Turn to low heat to remove scum.
