Tofu Katsu Curry is one of my unsurpassed most loved dinners and I will consistently arrange it on the off chance that I see it on the menu! If you don’t structure a katsu curry at Wagamama’s, I don’t know we can be companions. Simply joking we can, on the off chance that you make this one!
What is katsu sauce produced using?
This Tofu Katsu Curry sauce begins by searing onion, garlic, ginger, and carrot. At that point comes the flavors, mirin (Japanese sweet wine), tomato puree, soy sauce, and vegetable stock.
The sauce is most likely my number one piece of this curry and I’ll generally arrange an additional side of it. As I would like to think, you can never have a lot of sauce, particularly when it tastes this great.
When the sauce has stewed, you’ll rush it until smooth, or stout like it as such. Next comes the breaded tofu. This is the piece of the formula that is a smidgen all the more fiddly and chaotic.
You’ll need to utilize additional firm tofu for this, you don’t need delicate tofu that will break separated. In case you’re in the UK I purchase the Tofoo additional firm tofu.
On the off chance that you cannot locate any additional firm tofu, ensure you crush out as much water as possible with a tofu press. On the other hand, you could utilize seitan which will give to a greater extent a substantial surface.
In three separate dishes, you’ll put flour, plant milk, and panko breadcrumbs. The cut of tofu gets covered in flour, at that point milk, and afterward breadcrumbs.
This is the place where it might get somewhat chaotic so you can either utilize a spoon to help or utilize various hands for the wet and dry fixings.
When the tofu is covered it’s an ideal opportunity to broil them! You’ll warm some vegetable oil (I use rapeseed) on medium-high warmth in a griddle.
When it’s hot you can put the tofu in, I did two all at once. Following a couple of moments on each side, it ought to be earthy colored and fresh.
To broil the sides, utilize some utensils to painstakingly turn the tofu, it should remain on its side. If not hold it there for a few minutes until it is brilliant and fresh all finished!
What about rice?
For the rice, I utilized basmati however you could likewise utilize sushi rice, earthy colored rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice for something lighter! This formula serves 4 even though I certainly could eat two servings in one!
To spare time, you can make this katsu curry sauce early. It will save for 3-4 days in a water/air proof holder in the ice chest, or you could make a major group and freeze it.
In case you’re thinking the breaded tofu is too tedious (it is justified, despite all the trouble I guarantee) and you need a less difficult and snappier elective you could utilize some vegetarian ‘chicken tenders. Quorn, Fry’s, and most markets do possess brand ones.
