Yummy Yummy… One of my fav cuisine is Japanese food – almost any kind of Japanese food. So..naturally – I tried to test my cooking skills here. Decided to make Tonkatsu Japanese Curry Rice for dinner yesterday!
Actually this is not my first attempt in making Japanese curry. It is really easy ‘cos I used the pre-mix curry cubes from major supermarkets. Just prepare some carrots, potatoes and onions and add them to the curry cubes topped with water – Hey Pesto – You get yummy, fragrant Japanese curry. Instructions can be found on most of the packing. After some trial and error, I found the nicest combo of ingredients. 🙂
Ok .. now – how to make Tonkatsu? – i.e. Deep Fried Chicken Chop. I followed a recipe I found online but modified it slightly. It turned out really crispy on the outside and chewy/soft on the inside. Prefect!! But that is after turning my whole kitchen into a big, gooey, oily mess! Deep frying really mess up your kitchen especially if you don’t have a deep fryer. But of course, I married one good man who cleaned up the whole kitchen and house thereafter! 😀
Anyway, fruits of my labour – see pics below. Used my phone cam, so pics not that clear – but enough to whet my appetite. heee… 🙂
- Tonkatsu Japanese Curry Rice – my portion
- Hubby’s portion – MORE!
- some sauces which go well with Tonkatsu – Jap Mayo or Special Jap Sesame Sauce
P.S: if anyone wants the recipes, let me know – I can send you the soft copies. 🙂
