Curry powder is considered to be very healthy. Adding different kinds of vegetables and meat will make it even healthier. This recipe is a Korean styled curry & rice dish. When I tried Indian or other (American?) curry powder, I thought the taste was a little different from Korean curry powder. So, use Korean curry powder to get an authentic Korean taste. The Korean brand that I use is called, “Ottogi Curry Medium.” That brand comes three different kinds heat levels: hot, medium, and mild. I usually use medium for my curry rice, but depending on your tastes, you can use hot or mild. If I get the chance to try other curry powders for it, I will let you know the result, or if you try it, tell me what you think of it. I will appreciate the feedback. This curry tastes best with chicken rather than other meat, but you can skip the meat and it will still taste very good. 😀
