    Japanese Curry Fried Rice with Chicken Katsu


    The husband is a big fan of Japanese curry. I mean, who isn’t? That distinctly rich, thick, and mildly spicy curry with a hint of cocoa. Sooooooooooo good, and so simple to make! This dish was inspired by Pepper Lunch. That delicious sizzling Japanese cast iron hot plate meal. My go to is always the curry beef rice with cheese. Darn, my tummy is growling again!

    Anyway, with that in mind, I added the Japanese curry roux to my fried rice. Then jazzed it up a little more with more curry powder, and cocoa powder. Yes, cocoa powder. For a richer, deeper flavour, and colour too. Do you know that Japanese curry has cocoa powder added to give you that rich colour? So why not a little more? 🙂

    I used a mix of cornflakes and panko for my breading to make it extra crispy. But you can also just all panko to safe some time from crushing the cornflakes. Which I find extremely therapeutic when I’m feeling stressed! Almost like popping bubble wrap. 😀
