Japanese Katsu Curry with Soy Eggs and Pickles

Loading...
Curry or 'kare' is one of Japan’s national dishes - though it didn't exist there until the British Navy introduced curry powder in the Meiji period over 100 years ago. Nowadays, it is ranked near the top of almost all Japanese surveys for favourite foods, and the average Japanese person eats curry at least once a week. Katsu curry (or katsukare) is one of the most famous and popular varieties, consisting of a mild curry sauce thickened with flour and vegetables that's served with breaded and fried tofu, pork or chicken. We’re serving the tofu katsu curry here with two types of pickle, furikake seasoned rice, coleslaw and delicious soy marinated eggs.
