Dry Curry

Dry curry made with minced chicken.

I got this basic recipe from Cookpad. It's easy, quick, and tasty.

If you are using ground beef, cook it first separately, drain the grease, then add it.

Heat in a frying pan:

1 T olive oil

When oil is heated, add and cook:

1 minced small onion
1 t minced garlic (about 1 large or 2 small cloves)
300 grams ground chicken or beef
1 bay leaf (aka laurel leaf)
1 grated carrot

When meat is thoroughly cooked, add:

300 ml water
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 T curry powder
a little salt
(1 T ketchup)

Simmer until most of the water evaporates - about 10 minutes.

Serve on rice and top with a little grated cheese.

This is easy to make ahead of time and freeze, so it's handy for obentos.


  1. is there no curry in dry curry?

    1. Just 1 tablespoon of curry powder. I think it's a Japanese dish. Don't think of it as the least bit Indian.
