Monkey Curry Bento

Curry is kinda hard to put in a bento box, since it's too liquidy.
So I made dry curry this time.
It's great for lunch box!

Found vegetarian dry curry recipe on a Japanese cooking website.
It got good reviews, like "I made this for my husband and he didn't notice that it was tofu!"
So I gave it a try:) Let's see what my husband thinks!

50g Dried tofu (available at Japanese grocery stores)
2 Chili pequin
1 Garlic clove
1/2 onions (diced)
1 Carrot (diced)
3 Green beans (diced)
1tbs Worcester sauce
3tbs Curry powder
1tbs Sake
4tbs Ketchup
1tbs Soy source
1tbs yogurt
salt and pepper

1. Grate dried tofu 
2.Heat oil in a skillet. Saute garlic, chili and onion.

3. Add carrots, onions and green beans and cook.
