This is an easy curry dish, but its thick and rich flavor tastes like it has been simmered for several days. It's an addictive and delicious curry. This dish brings out the rich texture of the vegetables.
Add all ◎ ingredients in a pot (roughly chop the vegetables), and simmer for 15 minutes. Blend in a blender to make paste.
Heat margarine in the pot, and add the bite-sized chicken (refer to "Helpful Hints"). Lightly stir-fry the chicken, add Step 1, water, and bay leaves. Simmer for 10 minutes over low heat. Occasionally stir so that the mixture won't burn.
Turn off the heat, add the ◆ ingredients, and simmer a little bit.
Story Behind this Recipe
I created this dish because I wanted to eat curry, which brings out the delicious flavor and texture of the vegetables.
After cutting the chicken into bite-size pieces, rub with shio-koji, and let sit for 30 minutes. (Use 1 teaspoon of shio-koji per chicken breast.) It makes the meat tender.
