Japanese curry for dinner tonight? I have a thing for Japanese curry and tonkatsu.. sometimes this “thing” needs to be satisfied once a month! I used to have a phobia of boxed Japanese curry because it reminds me of my ex-Japanese boyfriend’s mom (I don’t want to be reminded). And Japanese curry and Miso soup were the only thing she made. I added a bit of fresh milk to this version, plus chicken fillet, chicken karaage, potatoes and carrots. So yummy! I used Golden Curry brand.
Happy Deepavali! On Monday, I decided that I cannot be lazy anymore and must start trying out new dishes again. With the Deepavali holiday coming up, must cook an Indian dish, right? I asked my colleague Shefali if she has a good recipe to recommend and she immediately said, “Butter paneer.” I swear I have never heard of this in my life (and even asked her to spell it wtf) but the pictures I googled looked amazing and seemed like what Jason likes to eat. I was game!
