Pork Katsu Curry is a rich, flavorful and creamy Japanese curry served with a crispy panko crusted pork cutlet over a bed of rice - an ultimate comfort dish.
Pork Katsu Curry is one of those dishes that both my husband and kids look forward to. Whenever I make this dish, my kids will often polish everything off and will be licking their plates clean.
Japanese curry is very different from the Thais or Indians. Japanese curry has a thicker and creamier consistency and is very mild in spiciness. Slather the curry sauce on a crispy pork cutlet and serve it over a bed of rice, you'll have a wholesome one dish meal.

Pork Katsu Ingredients
4 pieces Pork Cutlet (tenderized)
1/2 cup Plain Flour
1 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
1 egg (beaten)
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil Spray
1. Prepare the curry sauce first by heating up vegetable oil in a pot. Sweat the onions, garlic carrots for about 10 minutes.
2. Add in plain flour and curry powder. Mix well. Gradually add in chicken stock until well combined.
3. Add in honey, soy sauce and bay leaf. Bring it to a boil then turn down heat and allow it to simmer until the sauce thickens.
4. Stir in garam masala and keep on low heat until ready to serve.
6. Mix flour with a dash of salt and pepper. Coat the pork cutlets with the seasoned flour, then the beaten egg then panko breadcrumbs.
7. Spray olive oil all over the breaded pork cutlet and airfry (I used the Phillips AirFryer) them at 360 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes or until they are golden brown.
8. Alternatively, you can bake it on a baking tray at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until they are golden brown.
9. Slice the pork cutlets, place over cooked rice (short grain Japanese rice) and pour curry sauce over.
