It's pretty standard in Japanese curry to add shredded apples and some honey and cook till the apples dissolve. It gives the curry some richness and adds to the overall savoriness. It's the jam. Some people even dissolve tomatoes in their curry. I've never tried that. Japanese curry gets its "body" from the roux cubes. You can make them but it's kind of a pain in the ass. Pretty much curry powder and flour cooked out and reduced down to a paste then left to solidify...just buy the cubes. I always get House brand or S&B. When preparing the curry, I usually just saute some beef, to get some nice color sealed in, and cook vegetables in the same pot to absorb that beef flavor. I usually use potatoes, carrots, and onions. Lastly, add water to deglaze and boil down the vegetables, mainly the potatoes, are soft. Then just keep droppin' in yo curry cubes till the thing thickens and you got yourself some OG curry of the J-pan variety.



how much water do you add? just enough to cover the veggies and meat? I did that and my curry came out like it was watery...and I used an entire pack of roux curry cubes S&B brand :/

and is the apple thing before or after you cook the beef?

Ahh my bad. With the water, it's usually up to you. If you want more curry then add more water. If you like the curry with more vegetable, then hold back on some water. If you're making a big pot, then you expect to use quite a bit of roux cubes. I usually drop 3-4 cubes when my potatoes are cooked. Then stir them around till they're dissolved. From there, I start adding roux one by one. Make sure one is dissolved before you add the next. You should start to see your curry thickening. If not, you could always mix some corn starch with water and use that as a thickening agent.
As for the apple and honey thing, you want to add the shredded apples after you dissolve your roux cubes. Your curry should be at a point where you're satisfied with its thickness. All that's left is to cook until the apples are dissolved. Make sure shred them finely. I use a cheese grater/vegetable slicer. You wanna do the apples last so you know how the curry will taste with the apples, whether to add more and stuff. Honey is last. You don't wanna toss honey in while the thing is boiling, it destroys some of its properties. Just turn off the heat and add a bit of honey. Stir it in and you're good to go.

Pretty much, if it's not thick enough, keep dropping cubes. Apples go after you drop cubes and honey goes after you turn off the burner.
