Whenever I am in Japan I go to their bakeries almost every day. To me, they bake the most delicious and creative breads in the world! Small breads with savory fillings are called okazu pan. One of their specialties of okazu pan is a type of curry bread, or kare pan, which are deep fried donuts filled with Japanese curry. It is one of my favorite things on this planet! This is my own version of curry bread which uses puff pastry dough.


  • 3 Small/Medium carrots chopped bite size
  • 2 Medium size potatoes chopped bite size
  • 1/2 Medium size onion finely chopped
  • 3 cups Water
  • 1/2 package Japanese Curry mix they come in boxes (see pic)
  • 1 tbps Neutral oil (canola, grapeseed)
  • 1 Package of puff pastry dough

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a pot over medium/high heat, add oil and onions. Cook for 2 minutes. Add potatoes and carrots, cook for 5 minutes.

Step 2

Add water and bring to the boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Step 3

Add the Japanese curry mix and cook for another 10 minutes.

Step 4

On a sheet pan, cut puff pastry into squares (1 sheet should give you 4 squares) and with a spoon, fill the middle of 1/2 of the squares you have.

Step 5

Cover the top with the empty squares and seal the edges tightly (you can use a bit of water to moisten the edges and help them stick more easily). Cook for 20 minutes or until the crust is a golden brown and serve!
