Katsu Curry

It’s World Vegan Month and with Wagamama having launched a vegan take on Katsu Curry to much excitement, Japanese food company www.yutaka.london has created a recipe allowing you to make vegan Katsu Curry at home. Serve with steamed white rice.

Image by the very talented Bryony’s Kitchen who has very kindly given permission for us to use it.

Katsu Curry was developed in the 1940s by a customer at the Swiss Grill restaurant in Japan, who wanted katsu (a piece of deep-fried breaded pork or chicken) served in curry sauce with rice. It’s now taken the UK by storm and this new recipe features sweet potato and aubergine slices dipped in Panko breadcrumbs and served with rice and Yutaka’s curry sauce.

Yutaka’s Katsu Curry sauce has a delicate, mild flavour and has been created using a traditional recipe. It is available from Sainsburys & Tescos at an RRP of under £2.00. Yutaka also sells Panko Breadcrumbs to complete the authentic Katus taste.

1 large onion, finely diced

1 tbsp vegetable oil

800 ml water

100 g Yutaka Japanese-Style curry cube

1 large aubergine, cut in to 0.5cm pieces

1 large sweet potato, cut in to 0.5cm pieces

100 g plain flour

Salt & pepper

50 g cornflour mixed with water

200 g Yutaka Panko

Olive oil



Start by making the sauce:

Add a little oil to the pan and gently fry chopped onions on low heat until lightly browned. Add 800 ml of cold water and bring to a boil. Turn the heat to medium and simmer for 7 minutes. Then let the sauce cool down for a few minutes. Add 100 g of Yutaka Curry into the sauce. Stir until fully dissolved. Simmer on low heat and stir until sauce thickens.


To make the katsu curry:

Season the aubergine and sweet potato with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour then dip into the cornflour mixture and coat with Yutaka Panko. Add oil to pan and once hot, cook the slices on each side for a couple of minutes or until golden brown. Leave to drain on a paper towel. Serve with boiled rice and add the sauce. * You can also make this using Yutaka Tofu instead of the veggies.
