Japanese nagano curry is inspired by a recent trip to Japan. I was amazed at the abundance of apples grown in the Nagano region, and how they used them to flavour every thing from choclate kit kats to curry. The key is the distinct sweetness apples give when saut’eed with onions. This versatile mild curry works well with chicken, beef and vegetables, perfect for the whole family. We have not used msg in our recipe which is typical of many japanese brand curries you find on the supermarket shelves. We have also given you a method to create the thick gravy like texture using simple alternative ingredients to the roux cubes. I personally prefer to leave the gravy sauce out and appreciate the delicate flavours of the apples, onions and other vegetables.
Sichuan Pepper is an oriental fruit grown on a small ash tree native to the Sichuan province of China. Even though it is called pepper, it is not a true pepper and is not related to black peppercorns, which are from India. The berries have a warm peppery fragrance, with citrus notes & a clean fresh aftertaste leaving a slightly numbing sensation on the tongue. It is the outer husk that has all the flavour, the internal hard black seed is edible but can add a bitter taste. It is a key ingredient in Chinese cuisine and used in some Asian recipes. It is used in our chilli sichuan salt and calamari salt and pepper blends.
