Japanese Chicken Curry


Diamond Post Medal for All Time! 1,246 Posts

Chicken Curry over rice in bowlJapanese curry is different from Indian curry because it's more of a hearty stew. It tends to be much less spicy and has big soft chunks of veggies and meat. This is the way I make it when I'm in a rush to make a lot of food in a short amount of time. A dollop of cooling yogurt and a drizzle of citrus preserves make for the perfect accompaniment for this dish. I hope you try it!

You can find the curry sauce mix at most stores now in the international section. This one in particular is S&B Curry Sauce Mix. It's also available on Amazon and many other online shops. I used half a box of the sauce mix in this recipe for 6 people. This recipe doubles perfectly when you use the entire box. All the veggies and meats are cut into bite-sized pieces.

Toosa - 10 minutes prep time? It will take me that long to chop the onions!
This does sound good (even if it takes me longer prep time) as I like curry but not quite as many spices as most recipes call for so this looks like I could follow your guide all the way.

Maybe I'll hit my son with it on Sunday as he likes "new" dishes also.
Gotta go - make my list for shopping tomorrow.
thanks - again.

Betty! I feel like I should share my tips on how to chop veggies and meat super quick? I thought I had it down well most of my cooking life, then my mum made it all the faster recently. When I can get one of my "photographers" with me for my next chopping session, I'll post some tips!

I do hope your son likes this. Remember that the yogurt for cooling as a topping is a HUGE key. Sometimes if I have all the ingredients to make this handy, but I don't have yogurt in arm's reach, it's a no-go! ;)

I love Greek yogurt so that is usually always available and I will remember.
I will be looking for your tips on chopping vegetables (and anybody else who wants to jump in) as I am a slow-poke with this "chore".

Hi Evelyn! The info on the curry sauce is in the second paragraph of this recipe :) Here is some more info for you. This one is S&B Curry Sauce Mix. I've seen it in many grocery stores in the Asian/International section, but you can also get it at some Targets, Walmarts, and Amazon (but Amazon's is more expensive) Here is a link:

There are other brands. This is another good one that's a bit more "rounder" in flavour:

You outdid yourself with this one, Sweet Cheeks. I think you missed your calling. Shall I put in a good word for you at Maxim's?

Really looking forward to trying this recipe! My friend makes this often but I still haven't snatched the recipe off of him. I think he likes to keep it to himself so we have a reason to come visit him. ;)

I love this brand of Japanese curry and have used it a few times but not as hot as the one you pictured. Thanks for some more ideas on what to cook soon. Pinning it!
