    A few weeks ago, I shared my Japanese Beef Curry recipe and I mentioned how much the Japanese loves curry.  There are also a variety of main ingredients that we use for curry and today I’d like to share a chicken curry recipe.  Don’t worry, this curry will not going to take 4+ hours like my beef curry.  Hopefully I did not discourage you from making curry dish with my previous beef curry post.

    The actual cooking time for chicken curry is about 80-90 minutes.  The most time consuming part is browning the chicken and caramelizing onion but it’s absolutely critical you spend time to do this.  I believe this is one of the most important steps for a tasty curry.  The weather has been amazing in the San Francisco area for the past few days, 72 and sunny, perfect spring/pre-summer weather.  I don’t know if it’s a Japanese only thing but when it’s hot we want to eat something spicy like curry.

    I hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend.  I haven’t spent Mother’s Day with my mom since I came to the US but I am always thinking of you Okaa-san (mom in Japanese).  Happy Mother’s Day!
