I don't know but I'm prepared to be your guinea pig <selfless> I love chicken Katsu.

Yeah I've made it with a little sugar before, it will be fine, just add it gradually so it doesn't go too sweet. I also used some mango chutney once and that worked out well too.

We do toogrin

Can't make that much difference surely...

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 16-Oct-16 14:42:54

Ah mango chutney, good idea, I have that!

CrazyOldBagLady Sun 16-Oct-16 16:16:06

Hope it turned out ok. You have given me a craving now smile

Ooh, a katsu curry? I've only ever used a Japanese bought sauce (for a tonkatsu curry) - is yours a make from scratch recipe? Please would you share? Yours sounds yummy already smile

I don't strain the veg off, I blitz it all together with a stick blender. I double the quantity and freeze what I don't use. I also just use chicken breasts as health conscious ds prefers itsmile

We like katsu curry as well. I use this recipe:

Katsu Curry Sauce

1 onion, chopped
1 tbs vegetable oil
1 tbs plain flour
2 tsp curry powder
1 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs soy sauce
1 pint stock, chicken or vegetable

Fry onion and cook slowly for about 10 minutes. Add curry powder and flour and cook for a minute. Slowly add the stock and stir to avoid lumps. Add the sugar and soy sauce. Simmer for about 20 minutes. Blitz with a stick blender.

No carrots? Mine has loads in! I think I might try yours next time.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 16-Oct-16 17:36:22

Just had a taste and I think I prefer the mango chutney to the honey tbh.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Sun 16-Oct-16 18:01:45

It's REALLY nice,just blended it and using the sugar and mango chutney is a great improvement.

I didn't put anywhere near the amount of soy sauce as stated in the link above so you'll have to experiment.

The best katsu sauce I have ever had was made with bananas and apples. I tend to use the golden curry blocks, because that is what my Japanese friends use. But try the banana in the sauce, it was good!

Bananas shock

OH loathes bananas. DD doesn't like them either. I never cook with bananas.

Motherfuckers Wed 19-Oct-16 22:54:42

I know it sounds disgusting, but it tasted so good. You can't even tell there are bananas in it. I am also not keen on bananas, but I loved this!

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 19-Oct-16 23:44:56

I'll try it and report back...

I live in the uk now, but I use fruit also, grated up apples in mine with curry blocks, sometimes banana as well but mostly just apple.
