Chiciken Katsu Curry

I know it's been a while, but here we are. Trying to make it through Zoom Distance Learning school. Wohoo last week of it!
So, we love Japanese food, and have finally gotten around to making the Japanese Chicken Katsu curry. It was our first time making it, but even with that it was totally delicious!
Here's the original recipe:


curry sauce:
1 box S&B (4-5 cubes) Japanese curry
1 large onion
1 large potato
1 carrot
2 tbsp butter
800 ml water

chicken katsu:
80 g panko breadcrumbs
4 tbsp plain flour
4 chicken breasts
1 egg, slightly beaten
vegetable oil for deep-frying - we use canola


0 - Cook rice - we use 4 cups of calrose rice and 6 cups water and cook it on the sushi setting in the multi-cooker.

1. Chop the onion, potato and carrot into small chunks.
2. Melt 2 tbsp butter in a large pan. Add the onions and carrots. Sautee until softened for a few minutes.
3. Add in the cubed potatoes.
4. Add in the approx 800 ml of water. Cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
5. Add the whole packet of S&B curry and melt it all in, stirring constantly.
6. Let it cook for 5-10 minutes, lightly simmering while stirring.
7. Turn the curry off and let it sit, with the lid on.
8. Flatten out the chicken breast pieces between two pieces of plastic wrap. We use a meat beater tool to flatten it out.
9. Season your chicken breast pieces with salt and pepper before covering with flour first and then raw egg, then panko breadcrumbs.
8. Heat up the oil in a separate pan and fry the chicken on both sides until both sides are golden brown and chicken is cooked.
9. Slice the cooked chicken katsu into strips and lay over a bed of rice before adding the curry sauce.

What we liked:

This was surprisingly easy to make! Such a fun yummy and warm dish to create!

What we didn't like:

Nothing, it was great. The medium hot spicy was not at all spicy. 

What Kaspian thought about it:

He liked it actually! So did all the kiddoes. They loved the chicken strips most of all. Although Astrid loves plain white rice with her meals too. 

Next time:

We would like to use the air fryer to fry but not sure how well it would turn out. The crispyness is kind of crucial.
