It rains very often these days. I've had a hard time photographing good shots. I think lack of sunlight is always bugging food-shooters. I'm sick of dull weather in the morning! So Autumnal rain wets my heart too. Oh well, a lot of my bento pictures have piled up but I'm only going to post one bento this time because I have so many pics that I'd like to share here!
This bento has...
stir-fried purple potato,
a half of boiled egg yolk
chicken curry & rice,
boiled egg white stars atop the curry.
*babykins' super quick chicken curry recipe*
I like this curry, so simple and quick that it's perfect for a busy morning. Perhaps this can't be called curry!? TOO simple to be called CURRY. So should I name it *curry flavored chicken*??
2 Chicken thighs (boneless)
1 tablespoon shoyu
1 tablespoon Worcester sauce
About 5 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon curry powder
A little of salt and any spices you like or garam masala
1) Cut the chicken then dredge it in the flour a lot (this flour will thicken curry sauce afterward).
2) Sear the chicken in a pan until light brown.
3) Add all the seasonings and the water then braise it until cooked (for a few minutes).
Done!! It is super easy to make, isn't it!?
In the meantime, the omatsuri report still continues! This would continue until I satisfy myself lol! If you go to an Omatsuri you should go at dusk because you could enjoy a lot more the atmosphere.
Skewer-stuff stall is a regular, they have oden, yakitori, squid skewers and drinks.
Another regular stall is TAKOYAKI! Who doesn't like it? These takoyaki are pretty big than normal ones.
Speaking of takoyaki......
JA JAAAAN!! We made takoyaki at home the other day!
Haha it's a joke, not takoyaki! Yuppi and her pal tried making cake balls using a takoyaki pan. Who made them overflow?? Yes it's me. We used pancake mixture. Maybe I'll update the recipe later.
The girls stuffed and decorated these ones with chocolate. That was so fun work! The mixture is not that sweet so you could put various things into it instead of chocolate.... Cut apple or banana, fruit jam, custard cream, sweet bean paste, cheese, hum and so on. Of course you could put in cut octopus if you want, I won't judge. Only I can't assure you of the taste lol!
These ones are stuffed with teeny tiny hotdogs. Its taste is similar to corn dogs but much healthier, and yes YUM!
Aren't these cute?? Don't they look yummy??
