Japanese Curry

When I tasted the Japanese Curry for the first time,
I find it something different, 
though not really outstanding,
especially I am so used to our local curries which are savoury and spicy.

Nevertheless, it is acceptable to me because
I prefer food that is slightly on the sweet side.

As for the colour of the gravy,
it is darker compare with its counter parts.
However, the colourful vegetables added has brighten it up all together!

Special thanks to Kenneth Goh's  recipe.
I have adjusted it to my taste:

(A) Curry Roux
mix all ingredients together:
2 Tbsp garam masala
1/2 Tbsp curry powder
1/2 Tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp black pepper powder
2-3 Tbsp water

(B) Japanese Curry
45g cooking oil
1 cup chicken meat, cubed
1 cup big onions, cubed
1/2 cup green peas (I did not use)
3/4 cup carrots, cubed
3/4 cup potatoes, cubed 
2 cups water
1 tsp sugar (to taste)
1/2 tsp salt (to taste)
1/2 tsp plain flour (thickener)

1) heat oil in a frying pan, add the curry roux mix
2) at low heat, fry until aromatic, and oil will appear at the sides of the pan
3) when the mixture becomes 'light', add the onions to fry until soft
4) add chicken, potato and carrot cubes, stir fry for 2-3 min
5) add 2 cups water and allow to simmer until tender
6) add green pea, if using, salt & sugar to taste
7) sprinkle 1/2 tsp plain flour, and stir to mix in
8) allow to sit for awhile for flavour to develop before serving
