    What is Fukujinzuke?

    Fukujinzuke (福神漬) is a popular relish for Japanese curry. It includes daikon, eggplant, lotus root, cucumber and other vegetables that are finely chopped, then pickled in a soy sauce base liquid. Some of the versions include 7 different vegetables as a tribute to the origin of the name. It’s savory, sweet and tangy, and with a crunchy texture. That’s why we love fukujinzuke with steamed rice and curry!

    Where to Get Fukujinzuke

    You can easily make seasoned vegetable relish at home too, but some of the ingredients can be hard to find outside of Japan. For convenience, you can find a packaged fukujinzuke on Amazon or your local Japanese/Asian grocery store.
