Japanese Roux Curry

Japanese Roux Curry

Serves 3-4

A fellow blogger from “Little Orange World” told me that she loves Japanese curry and asked me to post recipes about it. I agreed, not only will I post one recipe but I will post 4 of the curry’s that sells here in Sendai. On the weekends there will be post reporting of the restaurants that sells those curries for you to get the nuance, please enjoy. My favorite restaurant that serves this curry is Kiechan’s Cafe, where they accompany it with gyu tan.

The first recipe is a clone of the Japanese curry blocks that you can find heaps in supermarkets. When I first came here and did not know where to shop for cooking ingredients these curry blocks saved my live a lot until we got tired of eating it.

Japanese Roux Curry Ingredients

Japanese Roux Curry Ingredients

When my daughter saw these list of curry ingredients, she went enthusiastically to her library and pulled a book on how to make curry. Unintentionally, all the ingredients were just the same and she pointed to each of them to the similar picture. So, she took her littler chair and direct me on how to cook this curry based on the book. When it was all done, she sat done and ate it very proudly while looking back and forth to her book.

2 cups diced potatoes
2 cups diced beef
2 cups sliced carrots
1 cup sliced green beans
1 medium onion, halved, sliced
3 tbs butter
2 tbs flour, sieved
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1/2 tsp all spice powder
5 tbs Okonomiyaki/Worcester sauce
1/3 cup soyu
1-2 cup water
1 beef consomme
1 tsp sugar (optional)
1/2 tsp salt (optional)

How to prepare:
-make the roux first by frying in low heat the butter, onion, and flour

-add the salt and sugar
-add the meat, cook for 10 minutes
