tips Make a batch
Katsu curry is a wonderful batch cook recipe. Double the quantities for the curry sauce and katsu chicken or tofu and freeze separately for up to two months. Defrost the protein overnight in the fridge before cooking, and either defrost the sauce in the microwave or fridge before warming through. Keep some packets of cooked rice in the cupboard and you’ll have dinner on standby whenever you need it.
Cooking for little tums?
This is a great dish for babies and toddlers who are getting used to solids. Use mild curry powder and reduce the amount to 1 tsp. Chop the chicken or tofu into little nuggets and serve the carrot and cucumber in slim batons.
Easy way to 5-a-day
Swap the tofu for thin slices of aubergine to increase your veg intake and stir 1 tbsp of peanut butter into the sauce for added protein.
