How to Make Curry

Choose Ingredient and Berry

To start making your curry you will need to choose the ingredients and Berries you would like to use in making your curry. Be reminded that using different combinations of ingredients and Berries will give out different flavors and styles of curry.


Fan the Flame

Fanning the flame determins the strength of the flame. Controlling the flame is vital in making your curry delicious.

Fanning too hard will lead to your curry to be burnt and fanning too slow will lead your curry to be undercooked. There will be a glitter effect coming out of your cooking stating that you are controlling the flame perfectly.

Fire Fire State
Very Low Fire Low Heat
Low Fire Slightly Normal Heat
Normal Fire Normal Heat
Slightly Large Fire (Shining) Great Heat
Large Fire (Burning) Burning Heat

Stir the Curry

After you adjust the heat for the curry, it is now time to mix your curry. You will need to mix your curry to avoid it getting burned. Having the right amount of speed in mixing will determine whether your curry will be burned.

Seeing steam and glitter effect indicates that your curry is being mixed well.

Put Your Heart Into It
