PERSONA5 Leblanc Curry Complete Recipe

 Toggle Light/Dark Mode

If you've played Persona 5 you know about Leblanc curry, the scientifically-enhanced spicy beef curry recipe that plays a few special roles in the story. In Japan, a pair of Leblanc curry packets were released for sale temporarily in 2018: a standard version that came with the actual secret recipe, and a made-by-Amamiya-Ren super spicy version that came with a huge can badge. While I completely missed out on the curry, I found a scan of the recipe card online and asked a friend to translate it way back when – he missed a key step though (grating the carrots), so my first attempt was a semi-miss. But since then, the recipe has been published here and there, but never totally complete. Either the spice list, spice measurements, all of the measurements, or the method are missing. So here's the complete recipe along with an official video clip made as a Strikers promo.

Funny enough, said promo video also omits the spice list, and in-game Strikers curry is made with pork instead of beef. Anyway, enjoy with rice and a fresh cup of coffee!
