Easy Karepan Recipe

Brioche for karepan (8 buns)

  • 140gr flour
  • 25gr melted butter
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tsp dehydrated yeast
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 50ml hot water
  • 25ml milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
    (1 egg + panko)
  1. Mix flour with a pinch of salt, then add sugar and yeast. Mix again.
  2. Pour the water and milk mixed in the egg. Add the melted butter and work the dough until it becomes smooth and soft (10-15 minutes).
  3. Form a ball and let it rest under a kitchen cloth for + -30 min (the dough must double in volume).
  4. Then kneat the dough again to expel the gas and then divide it into 8 equal parts. Form balls.
  5. Flatten them one by one using a pie pin on a well floured surface.
  6. In the center, place about 1 or 2 tablespoons of Japanese curry, then carefully close the karepan (by collapsing and crushing the edges).
  7. Let rest the buns under a kitchen cloth another 10 min. Meanwhile, heat oil in a wok or in a deep fryer (180°C).
  8. Roll the karepan in beaten egg and then in panko (and press on each bun so the panko stick to their surface).
  9. Cook karepan gently in hot oil and return from time to time until they swell and take a nice golden color.

I've launched this blog project (after many others) at the beginning of my university studies in 2009. The goal was to share my bento pictures and recipes with all the friends that were asking for. The time passing by, my posts have changed, they got more diverse. Now that my last year in university has come (soon I'll be a graduate in communication, animation and events organisation), I've decided to pursue this projet a bit more seriously. So here I am ! From now, I'll make you discover my tiny life day to day ! I'm quite a short girl (150cm tall!) and I guess that my low angle vision of the world might be a bit different from the other people. You'll quickly understand that the little things of everyday life make me happy !


Between ecology influences, homemade madness, geek attitude and japculture.

Eccentric, you say?

Not at all ... it's much worse than you can imagine!
