Japanese Curry


P1150416

This is one of my lazy-day dishes. To those who don't eat any curry but Malaysian or Indian curries, this is not for you. Japanese curry tastes like a westernized curry stew. It is so easy to cook. Almost all the Jap curry mixes make good curries but some, like the S&B mix that I used, are slightly too sugar-sweet. I also find that you can add more meat and veg than the recipe calls for on the box.

Japanese Curry

500g meat (beef/lamb/boneless chicken/pork, in 3 cm cubes)
300g firm young potatoes, peeled & in 3 cm cubes
2 large carrots, in 3 cm chunks
1 large brown onion, in chunks
1 pkt Jap curry mix

1. I don't bother to fry the meat. Just put the meat (and the onion chunks if you like it all dissolved into the sauce) into a pot, add enough water to cover and simmer till almost tender.

2. Add the carrots and potatoes and simmer till almost soft. Make sure there's enough water to cover the meat and veg. Break the mix into small pieces, add to the pot and stir well. The curry will thicken. There's no need to season. Serve with white rice or bread.


P.S. Wey starts final exams today and we've been up late revising. I just feel so frustrated and angry with him for not doing his assignments throughout the year. I know it isn't the teachers' fault but I wish schools would call or write to parents about missed deadlines, especially if it's PMR projects. I can't even cook; so upset.

This Japanese curry sure looks delicious. I'm sure it tastes the same way it looks! :) I like Japanese curry for its sweetness and stickiness.

NEE: u poor thing! my mum and dad had the same trouble with my youngerst bro. N he is barely scrapping through uni. whenever he gets into trouble, me and the other bro got to go clean up his ass esp in melbourne. we scolded like no give face at all also he just look apologetic but no use. but hai just pray hard he is growing up, still got hope!!.

Terri @ hungerhunger said...

nee: we just came back fm d bookstoreS. all his missing books r out of stock. n instead of studying he's now running around looking for lost books. n he's only looking bc i'm so angry.i honestly am about to break down.

Greg Wee said...

NEE: oh dear dear!..can see you are really upset. dont have new blog. maybe he needs a big scare. my youngest only started turning over new leaf when he is 24 like last year, he almost got deported from aust because his attendance in class did not reach a minimum level. mum and dad almost broke down, so me and the other bro had to run to lawyers, employing immigration experts, short of going to court. tat was how i spent my last year hol in melbourne. he does seems much better after tat.and actually passed all his subjects up til now. dont think wey wey need to go tat far. but maybe can use the scare technique like no planning to send him overseas if he flunks. and hopefully a mummy's prayers get to front of God's queue.

nee: u better hope ur bro doesn't read this! but tq for sharing, n trying to comfort me. 'WE can do all things through Christ who strengtens us' Amen!

Love your blog! Found it while doing research for trip to KK. Had a great time in your beautiful land, but didn't get round to eating all the good food recommended on your blog. Tried this recipe and it turned out great! I esp like yr suggestion of boiling everything instd of frying it first. Makes a nice stock for the curry. Tks Terri :))
