Developed by popular demand, our version of Chicken Katsu Curry is finally ready! “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!

This was amazing. Favourite so far from SC. I got my own breadcrumbs to bread and fry my own chicken. Not hard. The sauce and combination of extra spice from the pour over chilli sauce was wonderful.

Not enough flavour needed a bit of a spicy kick

Much better than I thought it would be! Not as sweet as some katsu curries and flavour spot on. Everyone was impressed

J - Nov 04, 2019

Unreasonable presentation image for the average person. Pickled radish watery and weak. Steps not as well timed together as other recipes.

Needs to be a bit spicier

Not keen on the flavour of the sauce
