Tonkatsu with curry sauce

Anson Smart

Japanese curry sauce lends sweetness and a little spice to the panko-crumbed tonkatsu. It’s a hefty dish that’s made for cold nights and second helpings.


Curry sauce


1.For curry sauce, heat oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat, add ginger and garlic, and sauté until fragrant (1-2 minutes). Add curry powder, stir until fragrant, then add flour and stir until dark golden (1-2 minutes). Slowly whisk in stock, soy sauce, juice and honey, and simmer, whisking occasionally, until thick (4-6 minutes).
2.Preheat oven to 100°C. Dust pork with flour, shaking off excess, then dip in egg and coat with crumbs, shaking off excess. Heat 2cm oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering, then fry pork until golden (2-3 minutes each side). Transfer to oven until cooked medium (2 minutes). Slice pork thickly.
3.Spoon some curry sauce onto plates, top with pork and serve with rice, cabbage and remaining curry sauce.

Japanese curry powder is available from select Asian grocers
