    Random Rachel's Note:

    I love curry, and have made it this way several times. Since I made so many changes to the recipe I originally posted, I decided to post a separate recipe. This tastes the same as Japanese Curry (Wafuu), but is simpler to make, and uses ingredients that I am more likely to have on hand. (This is easy enough for a busy weeknight, and it makes less of a mess since there is no cutting and you only use one pot.) I use Curry Powder Trio (Take Yer Pick!) since I have trouble finding curry powder at the local grocery stores - and purchasing the spices from a Lebanese food mart makes it much cheaper than buying the premixed powder. For the cooked chicken, I use frozen, but canned or leftover will work just as nicely- and if you use canned you'll also have some broth to use in place of some of the water. I normally make a double batch.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bring water to a boil (I normally heat it in my tea kettle.) Microwave the frozen potatoes, carrots, 1/2 cup onion, and chicken for 5-8 minutes, stirring once. The goal is to warm them up, not cook them.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large pot and add ginger, garlic, and 1/2 cup onion. Cook a few minutes until done. Sprinkle in the flour and cook until browned (basically, make a roux.) Add curry powder and tomatoes, stir well. Mix in 1/2 cup hot stock, making sure to scrape the stuff off of the bottom of the skillet.
    3. 3
      Pour the boiling water into the mixture, stir well. Add the bullion, and no longer frozen mixture. Simmer 30 minutes. (I also start the rice about now.).
    4. 4
      Add the apple sauce, soy sauce, and honey. Allow to cook for 5 more minutes, remove from heat and serve with rice.
