Most of the dishes Link can make in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sound like they would be a delight to eat. There are a few exceptions, however. Here is our guide telling you how to make Monster Curry in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Tears of the Kingdom – how to make Monster Curry

The Monster Curry dish should be made at least once on your journey through the game, so that you can complete the Teach Me a Lesson II side quest. Check our guide on how to farm crops to learn more about that process.

To make Monster Curry, combine Goron Spice, Monster Extract, Hylian Rice, and monster meat of some sort. The recipe involves ingredients you might not typically try to gather, and you are unlikely to make it often because it restores a mere quarter-heart.

To find the Monster Extract, purchase it from the merchant in Tarrey Town for 50 rupees. You can also hope you get lucky with an enemy drop, if you have more time than money. I was surprised to see it show up once when I killed a Blue Moblin in the Eldin Canyon region near Death Mountain. I’ve slain my fair share of them, and only seen it drop the one time thus far. Still, it’s worth noting as a possible option.

You can buy Goron Spice at the store in Goron City, where it sells for 16 rupees per bottle. That’s not a bad deal, and makes it cheaper than the Monster Extract, at least. As for monster parts, you get them whenever you kill most wildlife. Failing that, you can use Bokoblin Guts gathered by slaying Bokoblins.

As noted above, the Monster Curry requires four ingredients and only restores a negligible amount of health, so it’s not useful outside of the side quest that requires it.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available on the Nintendo Switch.
