Today we are making a chicken curry from homemade curry roux.

In the last video, we made a homemade curry roux, and we are making chicken curry from it.

This homemade curry roux is the base of Japanese curry.

You can make beef curry or chicken curry or even poke from this.

And you can customize by adding seasonings of your choice.

Making Delicious stock is the key.

First, we are making chicken stock with leftover ingredients from the homemade curry roux.

I hope you keep the cooked onions garlic and ginger.

If you are not, just skip this process.

I am using rich chicken stock,  but you can use any chicken stock you can access.

Even the chicken soup paste or chicken stock cube and water works fine.

What we are doing here is making delicious stock to make your chicken curry tastes to the next level.

How to build the taste of Japanese Curry.

I am adding Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce and ketchup and sugar.

 You might think that seasonings are too much, but this is a very classic combination, since the recipe was invented in Japan.

It’s  a very old-fashioned but authentic Japanese curry rice.

Maybe you are a surprising at the amount of sugar which is not considered as one of the seasonings of curry.

But in Japan, sugar is often used to building the taste.

The Umami, salt, sugar and other sesonings combine together, and it creates the complex taste that Japanese people like.

How to serve

Today I serve with my brown rice which has been freeze for this kind of occasion.

But you can definitely sub with white rice or multi grain rice you can refer to my perfect rice video how to cook it.

We serve curry rice with short grain rice so it’s not goes well with the long green rice.

What’s for condiment?

For the condiment I put the Gulley which usually serve with raw fish sashimi worst sushi.

Because the curry is so rich in taste so that goalie cut your spiciness with the Sour and crunchy.

The sour taste of the pickles keep the nice kick to it.

You can serve with sour pickles, instead.

  • Cut your onion in half and then slice into 5 mm thick slices.
    Cut your carrot into small bite-size pieces while rotating the carrot.
    The carrot is a bit too big, so we are using three-quarters of it.   It’s about 150 g in weight.
    Peel your potatoes and cut into bite-size and soak in water to remove excess starch.

  • Simmer on low heat for 10 minutes.
    Thanks to the homemade curry roux, the chicken curry looks smooth, shiny and very rich in taste.
