Friday Night Dinner: Katsu Curry | Recipe

April 13, 2018

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!



Katsu Curry Sauce Recipe

A simple sauce with breaded chicken means a super tasty dinner!
Servings 4


  • 2 White onions sliced
  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 3 Cloves of garlic crushed
  • 1 heaped tbsp Curry powder
  • 1 tbsp Plain flour
  • 600 ml Chicken stock
  • Black pepper ground
  • Drizzle of honey
  • 2 tbsp Mirin
  • 2 tbsp Soy sauce


  1. Heat the oil in a pan on a medium heat.
  2. Add the onions and cook until soft and golden.
  3. Add the garlic and fry for a further 5 minutes.
  4. 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).
  5. Put back in the pan, then stir in a drizzle of honey, the mirin and soy sauce. Keep simmering until needed to serve.

Recipe Notes

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,

    For some reason I expected there to be more ingredients in the sauce? What the heck? How can mirin, soy and honey make something taste so bloody good? See ya Wagamamas.

    We’re in a similar situation although still at the ‘looking at houses’ stage. I like the idea of making restaurant favourites at home and I lurve katsu curry

    This looks absolutely yum. I’ve actually never eaten Katsu curry let alone made it but you’ve inspired me!

      Oh my god you need to rectify that!

    I’ve never had a Katsu curry which is odd as I’m a big curry fan. I think you did a fabulous job with the recipe. The costs of eating out really mount up, don’t they – particularly when you’ve got 2 kids in tow as well!

      Thank you 🙂 It’s definitely a good way to save cash 🙂

    I’m a huge Katsu curry fan! Every time when I visit Wagamama, I always order the Katsu curry. The curry sauce is so delish! Oh I’m on a little spending ban too, so we’re trying not to spend money on takeaways. This is a perfect dish to make for a Friday night. I’ll definitely be trying out this recipe.

      You should definitely try it as it’s just so easy to make 🙂
