Japanese Curry (Wafuu)

Japanese Curry (Wafuu) created by LimeandSpoon

This recipe comes from Saveur magazine, and it tastes just like the curry we had in Japan. It seems to be a forgiving recipe: I used a sprinkle of dry ginger instead of fresh, left out the bay leaf, used 1/2 cup of apple sauce instead of a grated apple, used chicken bullion instead of stock and used ketchup instead of crushed tomatoes. Serve with freshly steamed rice. It doesn't take a long time to make, and isn't complicated although it has a long list of ingredients. Edit - A few reviewers think that 1/2 cup of applesauce makes it too sweet, so please adjust to your tastes if you decide to substitute it for the apple :-)

  • Bring chicken stock to a simmer. Meanwhile, season chicken with salt and pepper, and brown in oil. After approx 4 minutes, remove to a separate dish and set aside.
  • Melt the butter and add ginger, garlic, and 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.
  • Pour the mixture into the simmering stock. Add the chicken, onion, potato, and carrot. Simmer 30 minutes.
  • Add the apples, soy sauce, and honey. Allow to cook for 5 more minutes, remove from heat and serve with rice.

    I lived in Japan for 8 years and am so happy to find this website. My favorite dish in Japan was Katsudon and I would like to make it but don't know how to make the dashi stock. Can someone help me?
