Does anyone have a good recipe for Japanese style curry? I've made instant curry from those big rectangles before but they don't have the same kind of taste as the curry I've had in Japanese restaurants. They were always really spicy and had a lighter color compared to the kind I had in restaurants.
I live in a rural ass area though so I don't really have any kind of asian stores.
>>
>I've had in Japanese restaurants
Are we talking kokoichi or something? Because the major chains tend to have rather different style than home made Japanese curry.
>>
>>7289303
It wasn't in the same style as in the OP. It was just the sauce over tonkatsu and rice.
I don't know if it was a chain restaurant. I was in Europe when I had it.
>>
>>7289311
That might just be tonkatsu sauce which isn't the same
>>
>>7289322
It could be but I'm not sure still. It was similar to the instant curry I had made, just a lot more mild and darker. Tonkatsu sauce looks pretty thin compared to it too looking at google
>>
>>7289322
Tonkatsu with curry is a very popular dish at curry restaurants.

The secret OP, is to buy a few of those different curry blocks and figure out which one you like the best. Literally nobody makes curry from scratch.
>>
>>7289311
Huh, which city/ restaurant? I live in Europe as well and Japanese curry isn't exactly common style.

However, most home made japanese curry have a bunch of potatoes, carrots and chunks of meat. There's "bistro"-style japanese curry which is mostly just strong sauce with topping added later. I assume you ate this type of katsu curry.

The trick behind these bistro style curry is from what I understand that you fry a fuckton of onion until caramelized, add carrots and boiling it in broth. But unlike everyday curry where all these ingredients are kept as they are you take a mixer and basically pasturize everything before adding the roux.

After the roux has melted you don't need to keep boiling the stuff, but you can well by putting it in the fridge for a night before eating it.

>different curry blocks
Pic related is the only kind I can buy without driving 60+ miles

>>7289347
It was in Lelystad in the Netherlands.
That mixing thing sounds interesting though
>>
>>7289352
order it online stupid
stop buying medium hot and then complaining that it isn't hot enough
>>
>>7289297
>Does anyone have a good recipe for Japanese style curry?
Doesn't exist, Jap curry is bland and tasteless.
>>
>>7289357
The complaint was that it was too hot. I guess I could order some different brands online, but I just figured I'd see if it was easier to make from scratch first.
>>
Tough to make from scratch. Cubes (or foil bags) is the way to go. CoCoIchi adds a little coffee, so you could try that.
>>
Did somebody say "JAPANESE CURRY"?

I'm making some tonight. I can share my latest recipe afterwards
>>
What's the deal with this fucking Japanese Curry meme. Not just /ck/ but fucking everywhere?

The stuff looks vile at worst and mediocre at best.
>>
>>7290499
it's weeaboos being weeaboos

they see their shitty waifus eating it in their shitty anime and they think "GEE I SURE COULD GO FOR SOME KARE RICU"

in reality it's shitty and horrible compared to an actual curry from say india or china or thailand
>>
>>7290507

I generally like japanese food but this shit looks like the epitome of nothing special.

Maybe I shouldn't knock it until I try it but it's still annoying.
>>
>>7290499
>>7290507
Plebs detected, yes weebs are annoying, but letting that influence your opinion of food is a retarded way to think

There is no greater joy in life than a fresh plate of katsu curry with a shit ton of diced pickled radishes
>>
>>7290499
I always love seeing the look on their faces when you tell them that it isn't actually Japanese.

"Japanese" curry is British, invented by their navy to replicate the food found in India during their empire.
>>
>>7290560
75% of what Japanese people eat today isn't even 100% "Japanese", but who gives a fuck? Ramen is great, gyoza are delicious, curry is a delight.

Stop being a liberal prick and just enjoy food.
>>
>>7290507

Curry rice is pretty good. Oddly enough it's very good with cheese too.

It's different from a curry from India, so why would you compare them?
>>
>>7289368
>I just figured I'd see if it was easier to make from scratch first.
Good luck, because the means to produce Japanese/Korean bland style curry is a secret known only to food corporations. Salarymen and office ladies don't have the luxury of producing food from scratch. Curry comes from blocks or bags, restaurants that cater to these people with "homestyle" menus do the same. If what you have is too spicy, consider adding yogurt (by that I mean the blandest sugary Yoplait-esque brand your nation has to offer, don't add actual yogurt) or chocolate or ketchup or pear puree. Latter seems the wisest idea, to me.
>>
>>7290387
I would like that.
>>
>>7290387
How did it turn out?
Or were you just memeing?
>>
>>7289357
>He doesn't use the curry block as a base

The blocks are so you can get the correct consistency and so you don't need to have a million spices on hand. Then you add to it.
>>
>>7289358
well yeah if you don't add aromatics to it of course it's gonna be bland.
What, you think you can just toss "curry powder" onto chicken and get yourself some dank chicken tikka?
If you're too dumb to add your own garlic/ginger/onion you shouldn't be complaining.
>>
>>7290596
>>7290551
japanese curry isn't a proper curry, it's a vaguely spicy and floury shitty stew

it's nothing but trash

indian curries are generally a lot nicer since they use a wide variety of spices, herbs and vegetables, and they're naturally thickened with a longer cooking time, whereas japanese curry isn't (and is shit)
>>
>>7290560
No fucking body ITT said curry was Japanese. We're talking about a style of curry made in Japanese restaurants, the same way Thai curry is most commonly made in Thailand. Tempura and gyoza aren't Japanese either and no one you find on /ck/ is going to give a shit.

As for OP, you can add all kinds of stuff, in small amounts of course, to make curry to your taste. Applesauce, soy sauce, or chunou sauce might help you find what you're looking for.

The key point in making curry is the curry sauce itself. you can add whatever main & secondary toppings you want, kind of like a pizza.

Americans and their Japanese curry meme.

This 'curry' is what we used to eat in Britain following the end of post War food rationing. I remember my mother making it in the 60's early 70's. (yes I am that old)

>inb4 this is different it comes in blocks.
>>
>>7293206
I've eaten at that restaurant dozens of times when I was in Japan. I haven't been able to make or find anything remotely similar. There's one of their chain restaurants somewhere in California, may have to make a trip out there one day.

yeah, they have like 3 in Los Angeles, and i think 3 more in Hawaii. Lots of Japanese in HI apparently.

>>7293253
yeah, most of the reviews i saw for the L.A. shops looks like they have a quality control issue. kind of sad
>>
>>7293242
Except you probably ate it as is with some stupid Britshit thrown in it.

Japanese curry isn't as flavorful as Thai or Indian curry, but it goes way better with a fried pork cutlet than the other versions of curries. That's what matters to me, not this insipid "muh heritage" Pajeet butthurt.

It's actually a copy of the British Naval recipe from the 19th century. When the Japs started to westernize they copied the British navy, right down to the menu. So really it's a double bastardization: A Japanese-ified version of a British-ifed dish from India.

It's still tasty though. And so is British curry, and so is Indian. Who cares about authenticity as long as it tastes good?

I don't care about authenticity either mate, the only thing that does irritate me sometimes is the fact that "British food is rubbish" . . . .once it has a Japanese name "this is god-tier, I need it now" !!

And if the truth be told not many people knew it was British in origin.

Anyhow . . .being a Brit I love curries anyway, Curried Goat from the Caribbean, fish curries from SE Asia, Fruity Persian curries and of course Indian.
>>
>>7293337
Japanese curry tastes better than Britshit. It's been modified significantly in the past several centuries since it was adapted to add a unique Japanese bend.

It's not the same fucking curry you were eating, though. You keep on insisting Japanese curry is the same as your poverty Britshit curry when it's not. If you could get that simple idea through your thick fucking skull, you would accept that it's not because it's Japanese that people like it (unless you're a worthless weeaboo), but it just is a good, thick curry that goes great with rice and fried foods.

Eat shit, you Britshits.

The one time I bought a Japanese brand curry powder and made it, it was horrible and bland. Just try more brands online, java and Vermont are good. Things I add are chicken, carrots, potatoes, corn and peas. Broccoli is nice but will get soggy. There was a pic of things you can add to your curry to give it other flavors. It was from a cooking manga.

Dude we buy the extra hot and it isn't even as spicy as spicy chicken ramen. Either Japan is pussies when it comes to heat or I guess I am better at spicy foods than I thought, which I doubt because whenever I eat a jalapenos dish I sweat bullets and get hives.
>>
>>7293599
I just made it for the first time the other night (and eating the leftovers as I type this). It's pretty unremarkable. It's edible, even enjoyable, but I've made stews that were nearly incidental other than the roux that blew this out of the water. I'm guessing you got Golden Curry your first time too?
>>7294510
Glad I'm not the only one who had that reaction. I went through all the trouble of ordering the "hot" version online because my grocery store only stocks the mild. There was a very mild but pleasant heat when I first opened up the pressure cooker, but after thinning it out and adding rice it's nearly undetectable. I know the Japanese can't into capsaicin for the most part, but even they aren't this bad.

No shit. Curry is considered Western food in Japan because it comes from the British.

The connection to the navy is still there too. If I recall each JMSDF ship (I believe in the past the IJN too) has their own curry recipe.
>>
>>7289311
thats not curry.
>>
>>7295045

Nice. Even though it's simple CoCoIchi was definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Japan.

I've gone from, I think 3 up through 10. It's been a while, but I don't think I had ever done a plain 10 (usually had it with cheese, which would cut the heat a little).

It was painful to stop and breathe so you basically had to keep eating in order to avoid the heat.
>>
>>7294859
This one, I can't into phones so here's a screenshot. Add sriracha for more heat.
