Japanese-Style Daikon Radish Curry

This Japanese-style curry with braised daikon radish is so delicious! Garnish with daikon radish leaves for a touch of color. It tastes even better if left in the pot overnight.

Plain cooked rice
2 rice cooker cups' worth (360ml)
Daikon radish
1/2
Minced (ground) chicken
200g
Japanese curry roux
1/2 box
Japanese dashi stock
750ml
Daikon radish leaves
200g
Oil
for frying

Steps

1. Peel the daikon radish, and cut into 1cm chunks. Finely chop the daikon radish leaves and boil in salted water.
2. Coat a frying pan with oil, and stir-fry the minced chicken. Add daikon radish and cook until nicely browned.
3. Pour the Japanese dashi stock into the pan and simmer. Once the daikon radish is tender, add the curry roux and dissolve. (Add water if needed.)
