Japanese Katsu Curry
Katsu Curry is a popular Japanese curry dish and it doesn't contain any coconut milk like most of our Southeast Asia's variation of curry. It is usually served over rice with cutlet and katsu simply means cutlet and it can be either chicken or pork cutlet. Although it is typically served over rice but you can also have it with your favourite udon or ramen.

  3. In a medium pot, heat up oil, and saute down onions, potato and carrots.
  4. Add apples, chicken stock cube and 50% of the prepared roux into the mix and fill it with water. Let it simmer for at least 30 minutes on a medium heat and stir occasionally.
  5. Season your meat cuts with salt and pepper, then crumb it with flour, egg, and panko (in that order). Repeat crumbing until desired effect.
  6. Deep fry your crumbed meats until golden brown. Let it drain and rest.
