Japanese Fish Curry On Pandan Coconut Rice

This is another favourites of my kids other than local curry dish. Japanese curry is simply delicious with such mild and spice up flavour. Pretty addictive too! I especially like it even without meat cause the sauce itself already something to die for. Other than that all the ingredients are pretty much easy to get from almost anywhere.I have no stress at all preparing this easy delicious dish at anytime.And am sure you are too!

So, here's what I did.
Ingredients : (serve 4)
Pandan coconut rice
2 cups   long grain basmati rice, rinsed
2 cups   water
1/2 cup pandan juice from the leaves
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 tbsp   butter (optional)
(place all ingredients into rice cooker to get them cooked)

Japanese Rish Curry
1/2 medium size dori fish fillet, sliced
2-1/2 cups   water
3 tbsp   curry powder
1 tspn   garam masala powder
2 carrots, cut in chunks
2 onion,  diced
1/2 cup  tomato sauce / puree
2 tpsn  worcestershire sauce
2 tomatoes, cubed
1 tpsn black peppercorn, crushed
some coriander, cut
salt to taste
*thickening : 1/2 cup water + 1tbsp flour

Method :
(1) preheat a non-stick pan with 1/2 cup of cooking oil.
(2) saute onion till fragrant and then add in carrot, curry powder, garam masala & tomato puree and simmer for a few seconds then add in water & bring it to boil.
(3) lower the heat and let it simmer till carrot turned tender, add in a little bit more water if needed.
(4) now, add in fish fillet, worcestershire sauce, black peppercorn, salt & thickening and let them simmer over low heat till cooked.
(5) finally, off the heat and stir in tomatoes & coriander leaves, mix well.

This recipe can be done within 60 mins and then serving it with rice or pasta. It's a perfect menu for gathering so that you'll have more time to prepare other finger food & sweet desserts. Sounds incredible, right! So, have fun.

That's an interesting execution. For some reason I have never had Japanese curry with fish! It's usually meat or shrimp and vegetables but never fish. I wonder why?

The pandan rice sounds really delicious!

Not just your kids, I also love this pandan rice too! It has a very nice fragrance smell.. yummms!

Thanks for coming over to comment, as for my girl, she doesnt want to go form 6 no matter how much i encourage her.. she wants to go college.. so we applied a few scholarships but so far, there are only 3 interviews... still no news yet but recently, she got accepted in one Uni.. but not under scholarship ..we have to pay to go in and she will only apply for scholarship after the foundation..
as parents, we have to do what they want, huh... we cannot force them to take this or that nowadays.. :)

There's still some leftover I hope ?! ;D Love it ! Another recipe to try ;)

The pandan rice and Japanese curry combination sounds lovely. I don't usually out cornflour in my curries but I know the japanese curries tend to do that.

Diane Balch said...

I don't know what dori fish is? Is there a US fish that you can think of that is like it?

My Little Space said...

Diane, dori fish fillet is some kind of white fish fillet. You can actually use any fish fillet for this recipe. It works fine!
