Japanese curry is one of the basic dishes in Japan. Even in elementary school they are taught how to make Japanese curry. Beef, chicken and various types of vegetables (such as potatoes, carrots, mushrooms) are suitable ingredients to be cooked as Japanese curry. Would be perfect if eaten with chicken katsu and omelete. It can be said that chicken katsu is the Japanese version of Chicken Schnitzel. There will be no one who rejects this comfort combination food. This time I will share an easy recipe using block curry paste that is ready and easy to get in Asian stores in Germany. But don’t worry, I guarantee it’s good and authentic.
