“Katsu” is a method of breadcrumbing in Japan and can be used on meat, fish and even vegetables. In Japan they use panko breadcrumbs which are made from bread without crusts and allows for a much lighter, crisp coating. Curry was introduced to Japan by the British when India was still a British colony. Their version and accompaniment to Katsu has become so popular across the country that it is now a national dish!

I got into cooking the recipe then realised I needed corn flour and had none. It was not listed on the shopping list. Otherwise a lovley meal

Paul - Sep 17, 2018

Carrots ruin what could potentially be a very tasty dish. It needs something else.

Jack - Sep 06, 2018

Best one so far. Amazing.

Annie - Sep 04, 2018

Carrots in the curry sauce? I was hesitant but thought "why not?", it really didn't work. Just eat the carrots separately, perhaps as a starter, if you must. The cornflour was not listed on the shopping list nor the cupboard ingredients, but plain flour did the trick. Whipping up the radish mix and drizzle sauce was a faff and didn't yield results, I'd skip that part and the carrots next time and just have a side salad such as fresh tomatoes and spring onion. That said, the katsu sauce was very nice.

Jonathan - Sep 03, 2018

Perfect balance sweet/spicy. A must try !

Exactly like wagamamas! My favourite!

Judith - Aug 05, 2018

Not as keen on this curry. The sauce is very similar to a Chinese style curry, which is fine if you like that sort of thing.

Sharon - Aug 03, 2018

Loved by all the family , great that you can make it hotter with the drizzle sauce. I used turkey escalopes for a change to chicken

Michelle - Aug 03, 2018

Enjoyed this meal but wished I’d gone to the effort to serve as the card shows as the spicy sauce side was lost as I drizzled it over the curry and rice.

Hayley - Aug 01, 2018

Very tasty. Mild and creamy.

Daniel - Jul 31, 2018

Sauce was a bit too sweet
