According to the character profile for Minako Aino, A.K.A. Sailor Venus, her favorite food is curry! I wanted to create a unique curry with healthy elements because Minako also loves to exercise (her favorite subject in school is P.E.) so I added fruits of colors connected to her sailor scout attire/accessories; yellow, orange, and gold! Combining fruit with chicken curry, haha, not to mention adding whipped cream, might seem crazy, but it’s delicious, and I feel that it goes along with Sailor Venus’ daring and brave personality.😉
Sailor Venus’ Chicken Curry Fruitopia
- 6 Tbsp. Butter
- 1/3 Cup Flour
- 2 Cups Chicken Broth
- 1 Cup Coconut Milk (shake the can)
- 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 2 tsp. Curry Powder
- 1/4 tsp. Ginger Powder
- Dash of Sweet Paprika (optional)
- 2 Cups Shredded/Chopped Pre-Cooked Chicken
- Cooked White Rice
- Lo-Mein or Philippine Noodles (I used Philippine)
- Whipped Cream (store bought like Cool-Whip, or better yet, homemade so you have control over the sweetness)
- Sliced Almonds
- Apple (+ lemon juice to keep from browning)
- Mandarin Orange
- Passion Fruit
- Golden Raisins
In a large pan over medium heat melt the butter. Sift in the flour, whisking constantly, until s smooth slurry forms. Cook for a minute, & then whisk in the broth until combined & there are no flour bits. Whisk in the coconut milk, & then add in the spices. Bring to a simmer & whisk until the mixture begins to thicken. Add in the chicken & cook for a few more minutes until you’ve got a nice curry. Pour into a serving dish.
Peel & chop the yellow & orange fruits that you choose. To make the Venus Love Me (Heart) Chain, cut the apple into 1/4″ thick slices on the horizontal (so, not from stem to bottom, but through the center so you end up with the star core), & then use a little heart cookie cutter to cut several hearts. Submerge the hearts in lemon juice, & then use a few toothpicks to carefully skewer the hearts together, & place them on the sides of the serving dishes.
You can present this meal as a buffet so everyone can make their plate how they like, or you can start each plate with rice & curry (either on the rice or beside it), & then let people decorate it how they will. You can also take complete control & do the plating, according to your own aesthetic or following these photos for ideas. It’s all up to you! It’s a fun and crazy meal. Don’t forget the whipped cream!
