Bear Deco-Curry with S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix

With katsu curry now a firm favourite in the UK, try taking this dish to the next level with the almost-too-cute-to-eat deco-curry (“decoration curry”). All you need is some S&B Curry Sauce Mix, a handful of fresh vegetables and store-cupboard essentials, and a little bit of patience. Perfect to make together with little chefs.


Serves: 4

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 large carrot, grated
  • 92g S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix
  • Cooked Japanese rice
  • Vegetables / Scotch eggs for decorating
  • Cookie or vegetable shape cutters to create basic shapes: stars, flowers, circles


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large pan, fry the onion and carrot over a medium heat until softened. Add 620ml water, bring to the boil, reduce the heat, simmer for 10 mins.
  2. Remove from the heat, then add the curry sauce mix, in pieces, stirring until completely melted. Simmer gently for another 5 mins, stirring constantly.
  3. Use the curry sauce, cooked rice, and pre-prepared vegetable cut-outs and other ingredients to create your bear. Refer to the image below for some simple ideas.


Any combination of vegetable or meat pairs well with S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix, but onions, carrots, potatoes, beef, pork, and chicken are particularly great matches. It works as a topping for noodles, rice, or flatbread, added to casseroles, or even as a pie filling. Liven up bangers and mash by ditching the gravy for a simple curry sauce. Sauté butter and chopped onion, add water, and simmer for 5 mins. Add a curry cube and simmer for 5 mins to thicken. Refer to S&B packaging for further details.

About S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix

Curry has been Japan’s favourite home-cooked dish ever since its introduction from India via Europe. Its popularity was cemented in 1950, with the invention of easy-to-use curry roux cubes, and S&B lead the way with its now-classic Golden Curry Sauce Mix. Think Japanese curry, think Golden Aroma, Golden Taste, namely the rich aroma of made-in-Japan spices and herbs, the unmistakable silky-smoothness, and the authentic flavour of roux made with S&B original curry powder. S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix comes in 3 levels of spiciness: Mild, Medium Hot and Hot and is available in 92g and 220g packs. This product is sold in two pack designs.
