Japanese 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.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Yield: 6 servings
- 1 large onion, peeled and chopped
- 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
- 1 apple, peeled
- 1 lb raw boneless chicken, chopped

- 2 potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 5 large mushrooms, quartered

- citrus or apricot preserves for drizzling
- Fry onions in a bit of oil in a large pot over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

- Grate the 4 sides of the apple into the pot. Discard the core. Cook everything for a couple more minutes, stirring frequently.
- Add the chicken and cook until lightly browned.

- Drop them into the pot and stir well.

Karaage is a cooking technique for deep frying lightly coated foods, similar to making tempura. Make this Japanese style fried chicken for your family instead of KFC and they will thank you for it.
Cooking the chicken in a tasty soy and balsamic vinegar sauce makes for an easy, quick, and quite delicious meal. This is a page about preparing Japanese chicken drumsticks or thighs.
