Recipe By: Torajiro Kuruma (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/62)
Serves 1 Cook: 40 min

Ingredients

Onion (medium) 1
Carrot (medium) 1
Ginger 1 thumb
Vegetable oil 3 tbsp
Japanese curry cube 1
Chicken stock cube 1
Hot water 800ml
How to make chicken katsu:
Chicken breast fillet 1
Salt & pepper as required
Egg 1
Flour as required
Panko breadcrumbs as required
Vegetable oil for frying as required

Method

1
I used the JAVA brand curry roux cubes available in most Japanese foodstores.
2
Put the vegetable oil in a pan and add the finely sliced onions. Fry on low heat for 20 minutes. Don't leave the kitchen for any reason!
3
The onions will be beautifully caramelised. Add the finely diced carrot and finely chopped ginger and fry for a further 5 minutes.
4
Add the chicken stock and simmer on medium heat until it reduces and reaches your preferred consistence for a lovely onion soup. It should be about 1/4 of the original volume.
5
Turn the heat off and add the curry roux cube and dissolve. The delicious curry is ready!
6
Slice the chicken breast into two thinner slices but not all the way through. Tenderise to make them thinner and season well with salt & pepper. Keep aside for 5 minutes.
7
Dredge with the flour and run through the beaten egg and coat thoroughly with the panko breadcrumbs.
8
Deep fry the chicken in 180C hot oil for 3 minutes, turning over once. Remove from the oil and allow to cook on residual heat for 3 minutes.
9
Return the chicken to the oil for a further 2 minutes then remove and drain well.
10
Keep for 5 minutes before slicing thickly. Place on a dish of cooked rice.
11
Reheat the curry from Step 5 and pour over part of the chicken katsu attractively. This will look more delicious.

Tips & Note

Deep frying the chicken twice makes it so tender, this is the easiest way to achieve this when cooking at home.
