Curry has always been a passion of mine, especially Japanese Curry. After years of searching I have discovered the perfect Japanese Curry. Many of these spices can be found at your local Asian, Hispanic, or Middle Eastern markets, or substituted with S&B(R) Oriental Curry Powder. Well worth the effort - your family will love this! Serve over steamed rice or noodles.

  • Transfer toasted spice mixture to a spice grinder or blender. Add turmeric, white peppercorns, black peppercorns, allspice, and nutmeg; grind into a fine curry powder.

  • Melt 3/4 cup butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour and cook until golden brown, 30 to 45 seconds. Stir in 4 tablespoons of the curry powder, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Remove from heat.

  • Melt 1/2 cup butter in a large pot over low heat. Add onions; cook and stir until golden brown, 30 to 45 minutes. Increase heat to high; add 2 tablespoons curry powder, chicken, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and salt. Saute until chicken is browned, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth and bouillon cubes; bring curry to a boil.

  • Stir carrots into the pot; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add potatoes; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in green bell peppers and apples. Cook until soft, about 10 minutes. Stir in curry paste and simmer until sauce thickens and flavors combine, about 5 minutes.

I m insanely lazy so I cheated and used pre made curry powder with additional spices I had in my pantry to own it. I also used parsnips and turnips instead of potatoes and Granny Smith Apple instead of gala. It definitely is better than the roux blocks.

We just move back to the states from Japan and we missed our Japanese Curry, this recipe is pretty much spot on for Japanese Curry. I left out the Chicken and added mushrooms because Japanese Curry only uses vegetables, other than that I followed the recipe to the letter and it was fantastic.
