Kanji Reading Practice #20 - Curry Sauce Packet Part 3

 This time we are going to have some Kanji Reading Practice with a Curry Sauce Packet. Let's learn how to read some instructions, in Japanese, for heating up a curry sauce packet in a microwave.

Be careful! The contents are hot! See down below the photo for the kanji meanings, readings, and an explanation of the words.

The Words:

やけど – burn; scald (usually written in kana but can be 火傷)

注意 (ちゅうい) – caution; attention; warning; heed

**I tagged this Kanji Reading Practice as WaniKani Level Painful and lower (20 and below) becuase 5 out of the 6 kanji are lower than WaniKani level 20. Only one of the kanji is level 33, which is the reason I also tagged it with WaniKani Level Hell and lower (40 and below).
