Cut the cheese into approximate strips. Cut the chikuwa in half, and stuff in the cheese. Cut the chikuwa in half again.
Mix together the tempura flour, water, curry powder roux, and Krazy Salt (3-4 shakes). Roll the chikuwa for step 1 around in the mixture, and quickly fry up in oil over medium to strong heat.
Drain off the oil and they're done! Take a look at my recipe for cheese-stuffed nori flavored chikuwa fries too (Recipe ID: 865867).
Story Behind this Recipe
Try this in bentos, or as a snack with drinks!
The batter is flavored with Krazy Salt and curry roux, so they are very tasty as-is without any sauce. The cheese will melt out of the ends of the chikuwa if you fry if for too long, so do it quickly... About a minute is enough.
