Chicken Cutlet with Japanese Curry

I have been wanting to post this a long time ago. But my recipe posting time was taken up but the stuff I cook for my kids ^_- Finally .....

I will cook this when my hubby is away for business trip by request of my son! He loves it! That's because the curry mix I'm using doesn't even taste a slight bit spicy. ^_- A one dish meal is easier for me anyway.

  • 1 chicken drumstick, deboned
  • 2 potatoes, skinned and cubed
  • 2 carrots, skinned and cubed
  • 1 large onion, cut into smalled pieces
  • 2 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • Plain flour with water for batter
  • Bread crumbs
  • Japanese Instant Curry Cubes (I'm using HOUSE Vermont Curry Mild - with a touch of apple & honey)
  • Water about a litre
  • Oil for frying
How to do it:
  1. Marinade the chicken with soy sauce for at least 1/2 hour.
  2. Dip in batter than bread crumbs.
  3. Deep fry the chicken till golden brown.
  4. Saute the vegetables till slightly brown.
  5. Add water and boil.
  6. Break the curry cubes and add in to the vegetables.
  7. Continue cooking till the sauce thickens in low fire (about 1/2 hour)
  8. Place the chicken on the rice and pour the curry over and serve.
If you prefer a spicy version, you can get HOT mix rather than MILD one.


  1. I made pork cutlet rice with Jap curry (Tonkatsu curry don)before. Love it. I used SB Golden curry (spicy). They have Vermont too but I got SB cos' it's on sale! heh heh!

  2. I tried that Brand before! Wah! My son & I wanted to call for fire engine to put out the fire!! LOL Too spicy for us. We are non chilli eaters lah. I tried a few others and finally setted on this Brand. Bought 4 boxes home cos we love it! hehehe!

  3. I finally cooked this for my children last week :) I thought they will not like it but to my surprise, they love this and asked for it this week again. :) THanks for sharing :)

    Now, I can try other dishes using this ;)

  4. LZmommy,
    Really? They like it? Glad to hear that! My son also likes it.
