Sometimes you’re after the comfort of a favourite restaurant dish, but without the expense or wanting to leave the house. Dr W and I both love the Katsu Curry at Yo! Sushi, but have been on a little spending ban since buying the house so decided to make our own.
We’re not true first time buyers and the stamp duty is another portion of money we have to think about and also don’t forget those solicitors fees. So I hit the internet to find a recipe, there are plenty out there and it took a while to pick one. In the end I went with this one from Delicious Magazine. Although I must admit, I was lazy and decided to buy the chicken instead and just make the sauce for the Katsu Curry. But hey, it was Friday night and I didn’t want to spend all night in front of the cooker!
- 2 White onions, sliced
- 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
- 3 Cloves of garlic, crushed
- 1 heaped tbsp Curry powder
- 1 tbsp Plain flour
- 600ml Chicken stock
- Black pepper, ground
- Drizzle of honey
- 2 tbsp Mirin
- 2 tbsp Soy sauce
- Heat the oil in a pan on a medium heat.
- Add the onions and cook until soft and golden.
- Add the garlic and fry for a further 5 minutes.
- Stir in the curry powder, plain flour and chicken stock. Season and simmer for 15 minutes, then whizz in a blender (I used my trusty Magimix).
- Put back in the pan, then stir in a drizzle of honey, the mirin and soy sauce. Keep simmering until needed to serve.
- I cheated and cooked pre-made breaded chicken and served the sauce with it, and stiry fry noodles with veg. Follow the Delicious Mag recipe to the letter to have a go at making the entire dish from scratch!
Overall this was a super tasty dinner. Dr W was a huge fan and it’s already on the meal planner again for this week. Are you a Katsu Curry fan? Have you made your own before? Would you? Let me know in the comments,
