While we absolutely love a classic Japanese curry with its thick demi-glace-like sauce and chunky veggies, we also have a soft spot for creamy Thai curries, and spicy Indian curries.

To put it simply – we love all curries!

The recipe for this tomato curry is very simple and can be tweaked to your liking so you get exactly what you want. And rather than being spicy, despite its bright red color, this tomato curry is sweet and tangy. It’s perfect for kids and adults!

How to Make Tomato Curry

  1. Rinse the rice in a rice washing bowl (do not use a regular strainer as the rice will fall through the holes), or put the rice in a bowl with a little water.
  2. Wash the rice in a zig zag motion using your fingers, until the water runs clear. Drain well.
  3. Add the rice to the rice cooker inner pot along with the remaining ingredients. Stir well and close the lid.
  4. Select the Slow Cook function for 45 minutes and press start. Enjoy!


  • The potatoes can be easily swapped for another ingredient such as canned chickpeas, skinless boneless chicken breasts, or tofu.
  • Or mix vegetables such as carrots, onions, potatoes, with a protein. The total weight of the ingredients should be around 20 ounces (about 565 grams).
  • Add 1/4 cup coconut milk to add creaminess.
