Creative Rice Bowl – Japanese Curry

As part of my ongoing challenge to make as many creative dishes as possible whether its baked or cooked, my next challenge was to create a creative rice bowl with Japanese curry. I got this idea after seeing it on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to recreate it with the bf. However, he didn’t take his challenge too seriously so his picture didn’t make the cut in this blog -_-

Form a small round ball to make the head and attach it to the shoulder. I also cut thin strips of nori/seaweed to create the facial expression of relaxation. To add a pop of color, I cut up some thinly sliced green onions and inserted them into his head for hair.
