Japanese Curry (Kok's Version)

I haven't really tasted the authentic Japanese Curry before, but I decided to cook it myself tonight.

Golden Curry Sauce Mix.

This is the instant paste I used. "HOT", it's printed on the packet.

Wowww...

I used fresh carrot, potato, capsicum, onion and slices of beef.

Start drooling?

How I cooked the Japanese Curry? Easy... First, boiled the potato and carrot. Later on, fry the onion before adding the marinated beef. Next, add in 3/5 cubes of the curry paste. Pour in hot water to dilute the curry paste. If you want the curry to be thick, add less water and vice versa. Final step, mix the boiled carrot, potato and also capsicum with the curry. And HOLA! The curry is ready to be served!

Open your mouth wide!

Everyone can cook this simple yet delicious curry. For international students like me, at least, this can halt my craving for Miri Curry Rice for quite some time.

Wonda, I bet you know how to cook the authentic Japanese Curry. Mind to pass me your skill? :P

hahahaha you should rename this ti "Japanese Curry (the lazy chef's version)"

wonda said...

Wei, somebody call me? Gua lai liao. Still busy lei. Eh, got English instructions on the box or not? Fry all the veg. and meat in oil (if capsicum, put in after the curry is cooked to maintain the greenish color) then add water and boil till veg. and meat are soft. After that, add in roux and stir well. Add in capsicum.
My short cut version to cut down fat. I just put everything in the pot of water to boil till soft and add in roux and capsicum, or spinach last and my dinner is kow tim!

Dancing Queen said...

Hmm... looks delicious! I wonder how Japanese curry tastes like. Haven't tried it before. :)

Dr ve Thru said...

Kok, wah, your curry looks better than mine lei. How can??
So, did it all go and how many servings of rice did you have?
I think I will make Japanese curry tonight. :)

FireHorse said...

Iziit as good as Malaysian curry?

Kok said...

teckiee: hahaha! I know, I know. This is a simply hantam curry. :P

wonda: Alamak, you get used to calling me "Wei" liao? haha! English instructions? Noleh. It only states what ingredients should I use. I also didn't follow the instruction. :P

Oh, the only thing which is different from what I have done is to fried all the vege and meat in oil. For my case, I boiled the vege first. hehe. But, actually, what's the ingredient for Japanese Curry ah?

dancing queen: Ermm..I don't know how to describe it's taste leh. You can try it yourself though. I think the paste is sold at Boulevard Hypermarket (somewhere near the "rice section". But it's quite expensive. Try it and you can blog bout it!:)

Aunty Judy: Hah? My cooking looks better than yours? Cannot be lah.... hehe

Yea, all gone. I had one big bowl of rice with that. Cannot have too much rice though. Look at the amount of potato. A lot!:P

So did you have Japanese Curry for dinner?

firehorse: Of course, Malaysian Curry still the best ler. I don't know if there's any santan in the Japanese Curry paste or not. I doubt so. hehe.

ubi,
try this kind kotak type's ma po taofu. very yummy, although one box need $4.++. I'm addicted to it! Just need tofu and minced meat will do. Thumbs UP!

Dancing Queen said...

Yeah, I think I've seen it in Boulevard Hypermart but a bit was-was lah to try it! :P

wonda said...

A quick comment. Just came back from hospital after 7 hours there. My f-i-l's condition suddenly turned worse. The doctor told us to stand by.
Main ingredients for the curry is potatoes, carrots and big onions. I use the whole box of roux for the whole family.

Dr ve Thru said...

Kok, yes lah....don't believe go compare photos lah.
I didn't put potatoes but cabbage instead.
No, did not have Japanese curry but instead we had 'wat tan mein'. You know, the crispy fried noodles with the eggy sauce with green vegies. Like the ones people have for hor fun. In KL hokkien, we call 'kong hu char'. :))

wmw said...

Though it says "HOT" on the box, I think it's probably not HOT at all, eh?

Kok said...

bamboo: This brand got "ma po to fu" meh? How come I didn't know? $4 a box ah? Hmm...kinda pricey eh? I think we can find some good recipe online eh? That would save you heaps!

dancing queen: Try it! Who knows your family would like it?:)

wonda: Wow, you must be tired... Take a rest, k?

Oh, means that my curry is not that off when compared to the authentic Japanese Curry eh? hehe. Yea, a whole box of roux can serve the whole family. :)

Aunty Judy: Aiyo, feel honoured suddenly. :P

Yaya, I know that! Eh, don't remind me of that ok? You know I can seldom eat them. I want "Wat Tan Hor"! haha!

wmw: Yea, for me, it's still not quite hot. I think should add the whole box of roux. Then only it'll be more HOT! hehe.

jane said...

Muminmiri said...

You are left handed ah?

MeiyeN said...

Kok said...

jane: Yea, actually I think Japanese Curry is supposed to be not that hot. Maybe should ask Wonda. hehe. Add cili padi? Wahlao! That'll be too HOT!

mum in miri: I'm right handed. hehe. You must be wondering why I always use left hand to take the food right? :P

meiyen: Easy to cook mah. So everyone loves it. haha!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

You have a sorethroat? Drink lots of water and hope you'll get well soon! At the mean time, no curry for you. ;)
