Vegan Katsu Curry

Ingredients

Method

  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 sliced garlic cloves
  • 15g ginger, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp turmeric
  • 1⁄2 tsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 15g flour
  • 275ml veg stock
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 280 firm tofu, drained
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 40g panko breadcrumbs
  • 25g coconut yoghurt
  • 6 tbsp sunflower oil
  • Make your katsu sauce by gently frying the onions in a saucepan in a little oil until lightly golden. Add the garlic and ginger, and fry for 30 seconds more, then add the curry powder, 5 spice, and turmeric, and seasoning well. Stir in the flour, and gradually add the stock until a thick and glossy sauce is made. Add the tomato puree and sugar, and bring to a gentle simmer. Remove from the heat, and blend with a stick blender until smooth.
  • Cut the tofu into six even slices, and dust with flour, dredge through the yoghurt, and coat in the breadcrumbs. Deep fry the breaded tofu for 3 minutes on each side, or until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen paper, and serve with a generous slathering of the sauce.
