“Simple and quick-making Japanese-style crispy pork chops make your lunch box meal one of the best ever. And, remember to serve it with the savoury Japanese curry gravy!”
Prepare this savory pork chop meal in less than an hour time. And learn my tricks in making successfully crisped and coated chops. It is a 99% success rate.
And because it was home cooking, I tend to make it a healthier dish for my family, so as to save some cooking oil, as I do not like to keep the used cooking oil for cooking more than one time. So, instead of deep-frying the pork chops, I chose to shallow-fry them. It will still be crisped, but I had to fry only one side of the chop at a time as the oil in the pan will not be enough to submerge the entire piece. Just make sure that the chop is not too thick, and shallow frying method will be as good to make the dish a success.
Busy at work recently, and preferred lunching in most of the time. I had to prepare lunch box.
I bought a new nice navy blue (his favorite colour) triangle-shape microwavable lunch box which comes with a spork (spoon plus fork in one… Ribbons not included) from Robinson, for frequent use. Unique triangle shape, it presents an elegant outlook.
This was one of the lunch box meals I’ve prepared, the Japanese curry pork chop rice. Cooked this as it took just an hour to prepare and get ready, as a store-bought ready made Japanese curry sauce was used. So, there wasn’t a need to cook the lunch box meal from scratch, and I think this ready made curry was delectable and complementing with the pork chops. I had the curry sauce packed separately to avoid causing sogginess to the chops.

Curry chicken is a common spicy Indian cuisine across Asia countries. Asian loves spicy food, and Singaporean is always so fascinated by this fabulous curry dish. We have our own version of curry chicken, whereby its gravy is more ‘watery’. Indeed, we like to drench the bread, especially french loaf, into curry sauce, eating the loaf with curry dipping as a meal just by its own. Having more gravy in the curry chicken dish, we can even pour the curry sauce onto a plate of fried bee hoon (rice noodles) or fried rice to complement the dryness of the fried bee hoon/ rice.
I like dry curry pork. So as dry curry chicken! This recipe of dry curry chicken, especially. It is because I have added curry leaves and lemon grass stalk this time. Much more frangrant with a hint of lemon grass flavour. The taste of curry is even better with the curry leaves.
Dry curry is more popular among Indian cuisine. Hence, coconut milk in this dry curry recipe is not the main ingredient. You can even forgo the coconut milk as the curry taste here is pungent and strong enough.
“Authentic Asian flavour cooked instantly for Homesick Foreign Landers”
Dry curry means no gravy. It is a good choice as savoury filling of bread, tortilla wrap, naan and roti prata (I love it with steamed rice though :p). I prefer dry curry as the taste is stronger and more intensive to the palate. The curry texture is not too wet on the rice, but enough to complement it.
Good to cook it if you intend to bring it out to friend’s pot-luck party, picnic or as food gift to your relatives. No hassle and no worries that the gravy will spill while travelling.
