How To: Homemade Chicken Katsu Curry


Yesterday was a cheat day, I cheated on James! Haha okay, not like that obviously, this will be the first official post that will be up that not both of us has been involved with - but since James is away, it is hard to post content about food we both ate, if we're not in the same country.

Who isn't a fan of Katsu curry, okay maybe a few of you but still, who wouldn't want to save £9.50 in Wagamama and remake this delicious meals in the comfort of your own home for you and your friends/family.

After work we both met up spontaneously, I recklessly did some holiday shopping and then we decided to walk from Queensway all the way to her house (which is quite a walk to be fair), stopped off at Tesco in Portobello to get the ingredients for this meal, which again was another spontaneous decision.

Find how we made this delicious meal below!


Of course, we will one day be making this together, but honestly this meal was too good not to share with you all right now.

This recipe was taught to me by one of my best friend's, Rochelle. *Hi Rochelleeeeee :) We made it together in her house for dinner - oh how romance!

Ingredients:

Breaded Chicken

- 4 Chicken thighs
- Bowl of Flour
- 2 Eggs
- Panko (in this case we used Kellogg's)
Kellogg's special K actually, and it turned our really well too, maybe even made it that little bit healthier.


Curry sauce

- 1 Onion (sliced)
- 2 Carrots (chopped in halves)
- 4 Potatoes (chopped in quarters) 
- 1 Golden curry sauce mix (mild)


Extra bits

- Salad mix with Balsamic Vinegar
- Rice
- Tonkatsu Sauce

Instructions:

In preparation for this, boil the kettle for the sauce, pre heat the shallow oil for frying and in a separate pot, pre heat a smaller amount of oil to start frying the onions.

Oh and don't forget to make rice in this time too! Haha

Curry Sauce

1. In a pot, heat a bit of oil and fry onions until soft, then add your carrots and potatoes for 3-4 mintues
2. Pour in some boiled water, covering the vegetables and more, to how much sauce you want
3. Mix in the Curry Sauce Mix and let it dissolve until it thickens, add water if necessary

Breaded Chicken

1. In three separated bowls, out your flour, eggs (mixed and seasoned) and panko (Kellogg's crushed)
2. Cut your chicken to preferable size, then dip in flour, then egg wash, then into the bread base
3. Fry the mix in a pot of heated shallow oil
Repeat until all chicken is done

Place your salad on the side of your plate with balsamic vinegar, along with rice on the other, breaded chicken on top on the rice, pour that curry sauce all over it and top it off with some tomkatsu sauce and ENJOY!


Let us know what substitute would you have used instead of Panko?
