Rub the gar­lic, ginger, chilli and salt and rub all over the chicken and trans­fer to a roast­ing tin. Cover with foil and bake for 30 min­utes, while you make the sauce. Place the onions and gar­lic in a medium saucepan set over a high heat. Sauté un­til soft. Add the car­rots and cover with a lid. Re­duce the heat and cook for 10 to 12 min­utes, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally. Add the flour and curry pow­der, and stir un­til slightly thick­ened.

Re­move the chicken fil­lets from the oven and al­low to cool un­til you are able to han­dle them. Coat the chicken in the flour, then coat in the beaten egg and fi­nally coat with panko, press­ing into the crumbs so that they stick to the fil­lets. Fry the chicken un­til golden brown. Serve the fried chicken on a bed of steamed rice and top with the katsu sauce.
