Japanese Curry Rice
Curry rice is always a good place to start. This beloved dish is rich with a mix of savoury and sweet — just what you need to fill you up. It’s easy to make, too. Just mix a curry roux with your choice of meat and some vegetables, and you’re good to go. Here’s what you’ll need and what you’ll do for a meal that can serve three to four people.
200g beef, pork or chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cups of water
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 carrot, peeled and cut like coins
1 large potato, peeled and cut into small chunks
Salt and pepper to taste
Season your choice of meat with salt and pepper then set aside. Pour oil into a pot and sautee the onions until they become translucent. Stir in your meat and cook till it’s browned. Add the potato and carrots and let them pan-fry a bit before pouring in the water. Then, simmer for 20 minutes. Then, add in the curry roux. Once the roux has completely dissolved, and let it simmer on low heat for an hour or until the meat and potatoes have been thoroughly cooked. Pour some over steamed rice.
