Mt. Fuji Curry Ja-pan

— Chef's Note —

Curry bread bowls happen when you try to make naan bread look like Mt. Fuji. The dough needs to rise by itself for a while, but other than that, they're easy to make and satisfying to munch on. You may want to try chopped garlic, coriander, or another spice during step 2.
