Steps to make to make Tonkatsu or Katsu Curry

  1. Add the rice to the rice cooker. Wash and rinse it a few times until it is no longer cloudy. Cook the rice and leave it there until ready for serving.

  3. Boil about 5 cups of water in a kettle to save time. On medium heat, in a medium sized sauce pan place the carrots and potatoes. Add the hot water enough to cover the vegetables and cook until soft. In a colander drain the vegetables and set the carrots and potatoes aside.
  4. On medium heat, add oil in a wok and let it heat up for about a minute. Place onions in wok and sauté the onions until soft bad becomes translucent, then add the carrots and potatoes and stir. Cook it for about a minute. Now add broccoli or mangetout and mushrooms. Cook for about 1-2 minutes. Add the curry block along with then the hot water (from kettle) enough to cover the vegetables.

  7. In the meantime as the curry simmers, prepare the pork by pounding each loin piece one by one until 0.5cm thick. Season with salt & pepper (add as much or little as you like).
  8. Take a piece of pork loin (I used pork) or chicken breast and fully coat it all over in the flour on both sides. Dip into the egg and let any excess egg drip back into the bowl. Then place the pork in the panko breadcrumbs and cover the meat with it on both sides (including the edges). Place this on a large baking tray. Repeat the steps until all the pork has been used and set aside.tonkatsu or katsu curry step 1tonkatsu or katsu curry step 2
