japanese curry with rice

my close OPS friend gave me a packet of japanese curry powder. his friend who is a chef with a hotel restaurant uses that to prepare japanese curry.

so i decided to make some jap curry this evening on 3.3.2017. ^^

japanese curry powder

the packet had 4 tablets/blocks.

i used 1 piece & about 500ml of water.

japanese curry – carrots, yellow onions, potatoes

i decided to do just vegetables.

i don’t mind japanese curry with prawns, or with chicken, but vegetables is also fine for a start.

for today, i used 1 large carrot, 1/2yellow onions, 1.5 potatoes & some (1/2 packet) baby corn.

i fried the carrots & onions in 1 tbsp oil in a dutch oven pot, covered for 5 minutes to soften.

then added 1 block of jap curry powder, 500ml water, stirred to dissolve, then covered & boiled for like 30mins.

then i added the baby corn & potatoes & boiled for another 10mins.

potatoes are just cooked through when they break up when pressed against side of the pot, then it won’t be overcooked & mushy.

for today i found that the baby corn were just right still crunchy when the potatoes about done, so also 10mins thereabout….

of course important that the jap curry is thick & tasty enough so cannot put too much water.

it is better to put less, taste & add water as you go.

anyway tasting most important. always taste for the texture/doneness you like & how intense the curry gravy you like.
