How do you make Japanese curry better?
It’s actually really good if you add some fish sauce and ketchup. My friend swears by adding some ground coffee to the mix after adding the roux. My local grocery series jars of garlic-and-ginger paste that I’m a fan of adding to Japanese curry. I also regularly use chicken broth instead of water.

How do you make Japanese curry thicker?

How do you cut carrots for Japanese curry?
Cut the carrot diagonally while rotating it a quarter between cuts (we call this cutting technique “rangiri” in Japanese ). Cut the potato in half, and then cut each piece into quarters. Soak in water for 15 minutes to remove the starch.
Does coffee go with curry?
If you’ve never tried it, you really should give it a try. Japanese curry is very sweet rather than spicy (even the ‘spicy’ varieties are usually sweeter than they are spicy) so it probably goes pretty well with coffee.

How do you make Japanese curry more spicy?

What to do if Japanese curry is too watery?
Mix cornstarch or potato starch (katakuriko) in cold water. Once reasonably dissolved, add it to the curry pot. This type of thickener can create a slightly odd texture in a Japanese curry, as the browned roux creates a more velvety texture, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t done it before in a pinch.

2 Answers. You don’t need to precook the potatoes just put them in and let them cook through (30-40 mins high heat). The real trick I’ve found is then letting the curry cool completely and leave in the fridge overnight. The next day the potatoes have a lovely soft texture and have absorbed lots of curry flavour.
