Katsu Curry

Categorised in: | Link of this article

In this recipe video, I will introduce how to make Katsu Curry. This is a Japanese curry with Tonkatsu (pork cutlets) is usually served on top of rice. The harmony of the thick Japanese curry roux and the crispy, juicy pork cutlet is exquisite. As you can see, it is a hearty dish, so it may be difficult for some people to eat a plate of it in a single sitting. This time, I use homemade curry roux that I filmed the other day. If you’re interested, by all means, go ahead and make it from scratch.

Ingredients (2 servings):

300g Japanese rice (10.5 oz)  *steamed
