homemade roux / carrots / turnips

Active: 35 min Total: 40 min
If you've never enjoyed Japanese curry before, it's actually more a rich gravy than a traditional curry. It goes perfect with chicken and veggies!
Smarts: A lot of families opt for pre-made curry cubes, but it's so easy to make your own! Just some butter, coconut and almond flour, and spices!

Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then onions, garlic, and ginger to heated oil with a sprinkle of salt. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.
  2. While aromatics are cooking, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, and then whisk in coconut and almond flours. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the mixture is an amber color, 8 to 10 minutes (you’re making a roux!).
  3. Add chicken, carrots, and rutabagas to pot with onions and saute for another 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Pour in chicken stock and grated apples. Bring to a boil and then simmer.
  5. Once the roux is amber, whisk in curry powder, garam masala, and cayenne (if using), forming a brown paste. Whisk in chicken stock until you get a creamy sauce.
  6. Fold creamy curry sauce, honey, aminos, and tomato paste into the other pot, stirring to incorporate. Simmer until the vegetables are tender. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. If your curry tastes a bit bitter, balance it out with more honey. If it’s too bland, add more aminos and spices.
  7. Enjoy your curry warm and topped with green onions!
