Japanese Chicken Curry チキンカレー

Adapted from a Just One Cookbook recipe

Wife Jan is teaching the Anthropology of Food this semester. She had gotten to the English introducing curry to the Japanese and she thought “Japanese curry, yum!” The Japanese have made this dish their own—it is much milder and sweeter than an Indian curry.

Karl’s Fukujinzuke

I’m making Japanese curry for dinner and, in reading Just One Cookbook’s recipe, I learned that fukujinzuke is commonly served on the side. Fukujinzuke is the Japanese version of a chutney to compliment the curry—a cooling, crunchy contrast to the soft and spicy main dish. While this dish may have four main ingredients—daikon, eggplant, lotus root and cucumber—it may also have up to seven in homage to the Seven Lucky Gods. I cannot eat eggplant, wife Jan does not like lotus root, and daughter Eilene does not like shiitake mushrooms—another common ingredient—I adapted the recipe and used what I had on hand.

Karl’s Ramen Eggs

Adapted from a Just One Cookbook recipe

Wife Jan is teaching the Anthropology of Food this semester. She had gotten to the English introducing curry to the Japanese and she thought “Japanese curry, yum!” The Japanese have made this dish their own—it is much milder and sweeter than an Indian curry. I wanted to make an “authentic” version, so I adapted a Just One Cookbook recipe. Many Japanese top their curry with a boiled egg.

Karl’s Curry Powder for Japanese Curry

I am making a twist on Japanese curry this Sunday. I did not want to use the commercial curry cubes that most recipes for Japanese curry call for. Looking on-line at some recipes for Japanese curry spice blends, I created my own blend.

Karl’s Japanese Chicken Curry

Eilene is having a bunch of her friends over for an overnight. She challenged me to make a Japanese curry. I do not particularly like Japanese curry, but it is for her and her friends.
