A family-friendly Thermomix Japanese Chicken Curry that's perfect for an easy midweek dinner! Serve with rice, spring onions and picked ginger.
Hands up if you love curry? And what about Japanese food? Well this recipe combines the best of both worlds! A delicious Thermomix curry made with katsu style flavours..... YUM!
This Thermomix Japanese Chicken Curry takes just 30 minutes to cook and is honestly just the most delicious thing ever! I like to serve it with:
- brown rice (any rice is fine!)
- picked ginger
- spring onions
- sesame seeds
- kewpie mayo
You can always add some extra steamed greens on the side if you like!
This recipe has been converted to the Thermomix from this original recipe on Taste.com. I'd made it lots of times the conventional way, but I love that in the Thermie you can basically set and forget! The perfect midweek meal.

I'm wondering about a substitute for apple sauce - the only ones I can find in my area a full of sugar.
You could make your own using boiled and pureed apples.
what is the Varoma stir speed please?
Hi Sarah, Varoma is the temperature and soft/stir is the speed. 🙂
Absolutely delicious. Even my fussy children gobbled it up.
Hi Erin when doing the Varoma part what did you set it too please
Delicious ? And so easy. This will definitely be made again.
Enjoyed by the whole family & hubby commented that it tasted exactly like what you buy as Japanese takeaway. Will definitely be making again.
Yay! That's so great to hear!
This was absolutely amazing. Top three favourite recipes now, hands down. Side note I changed out the beans for peas as I dont like beans, and I served with pasta instead of rice.
Loved it! We had no apple sauce so just cut up apple wedges! Great hit with all the family.
That's fantastic! Thank you!
What kind of curry powder do you recommend?? Thank you

Hi Libby, we usually just use 'Keens' Curry Powder which you can find at the supermarket 🙂
