Katsu Curry Recipe


Get your Wagamama katsu curry fix at home with this healthier version - don't worry, we've kept things super simple! Instead of deep frying the chicken, we've opted to oven-bake to keep it light and crispy. While the chicken is in the oven you can make the katsu sauce so that when the chicken is ready, you can serve your meal straight away. 

Did you know?

Katsu means cutlet in Japanese but it's pronunciation is the same as the verb 'to win'. So often in Japan, students will eat katsu the night before an important exam.
