In Japan ‘katsu’ refers to a meat cutlet that’s been breaded and fried - it’s often served with a mild curry sauce but here we’re turning it into a delicious chicken burger. The curry powder used to season both the chicken burger and accompanying ketchup didn’t arrive in Japan until the British introduced it there about 100 years ago (after its invention during their occupation of India in order to commercialise complex Indian spice blends).
