I’ve actually had this amazing rice mould set on my wishlist for a while so I was really pleased to get one from Blippo to review. I make Japanese curry quite often and it could definitely be improved with bunny shaped rice!
The set costs just under £10 and you get three different rice moulds (bunny, dolphin and sunflower), plus cutters. The instructions are all in Japanese but it seemed pretty obvious what to do.

Japanese curry is really easy to make, as you just need curry roux that comes in blocks. I buy S&B Golden Curry from my local Waitrose. If you have an Asian market nearby, you should find curry roux there, or you can order online from sites like JapanCentre. All the brands are pretty similar in taste so get whatever’s available. Serious Eats have a good guide to the different brands, plus the basic recipe that is similar to what I make, except mine has different vegetables – roast sweet potato, yellow (bell) pepper and peas. I just use whatever I have.
