Ebi Furai Curry

Japanese cuisine is not only famous for their traditional dishes like sushi or ramen, but also for perfectly incorporating western dishes with traditional Japanese cooking technics and fresh ingredients, they call this Yoshoku, or western food. So, today,  we are making two easy and fast dishes that work together brilliantly, Japanese Curry and Ebi Furai.

  • 1/2 box Japanese Curry Roux (usually 6 bricks in each box, half is 3; S&B’s Golden Curry)
  • 180 ml or 3/4 cup chicken broth

  • 1 large potato
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 10 large shrimp or prawn
  • 1 egg; flour (quantity adjustable)

  3. Drop in the 3 curry bricks, turn the heat down to low and let it cook slowly, stir constantly to create a smooth and creamy sauce
  4. Once it turns smooth, let it simmer on low for about 8 min
  5. Devein the shrimps, gently slice the bottom, then press it on a flat surface until it straightens
  6. Dry it, dust it with flour, then dip it in the beaten egg, then cover it with some breadcrumbs, panko works the best, but anything works
