Homemade Japanese Curry Roux

My husband looooves Japanese curry!!
I always use boxed instant curry roux when making Japanese curry.
However, it contains a lot of fat. preservatives and other unhealthy ingredients!
So I decided to make it from scratch.
This is as easy as using instant curry roux:) Miso helps it bring out rich flavor.


60g flour
45g Canola oil
10g Curry powder
1tbs Shio Koji, or 1tsp Salt
*See the older post about Shio Koji

1clove Garlic
Ginger, same size as a clove of garlic
1 Onion
1 Potato
1/2 Carrot
1 chicken breast
800ml Water

1tbs Sugar
1tbs Honey
1tbs Ketchup
2tbs Miso
1/2can Diced tomato

Soy sauce to taste

1. Mix flour, oil, curry powder, shio koji or salt together and set aside.
2. Mince garlic and ginger. Cut vegetables and meat into small pieces.
3. Heat a little oil in a pot and add garlic and ginger.
4. Add vegetables and chicken. Cook until the veges get soft.
