Japanese chicken curry

japcurry 01

Every time I go to a Japanese restaurant in Sydney, one of the thing that I would love to order, is Japanese chicken curry. It is often served as a dinner dish, or lunch. It also comes in bento boxes too! Japanese curry has a very different taste compared to Indian curries. Japanese curry is sweeter, milder and thicker. In fact, I think this dish is a quick, easy and fail-safe meal to make and best for  for busy weekday nights!! Above all, this dish has great nutrition too! It’s whipped with of chicken, carrots, potatoes and onions. So today, I’ll be sharing my style in this recipe.
