Tofu katsu curry {vegan}

tofu katsu recipe

J’avoue que j’ai un faible pour la cuisine asiatique donc aujourd’hui on retourne au Japon pour une recette mythique le katsu curry. Originellement cuisiné avec du porc frit (tonkatsu), je vous propose une version avec du tofu frit hyper simple à réaliser. Il faut savoir que bien souvent la sauce curry est réalisée à base d’un cube tout prêt (mais remplis d’exhausteur et autres arômes) mais là tout est fait maison et vous allez voir que ça n’est pas très compliqué ! I had already tasted this dish in a restaurant a long time ago and I had wonderful memories of it and frankly it’s just like I remember it, the creamy and spicy side of the sauce and the crispiness of the tofu , In short, it’s a wonderfully comforting recipe. !

Katsu curry is the perfect combination of Japanese curry and a breaded chop (katsu),

here tofu and served with rice. For the curry I made my own spice mix but you can of course use a ready-made curry powder to make your life easier. ! You will see, once tested you will adopt it because this katsu curry recipe is perfect (oui, Yes, just that !!!) ! Alors go, go, go, we go into the kitchen and enjoy this little homemade dish that warms us up, and no excuses because in terms of ingredients it’s really cupboard cooking or at worst from the grocery store down the street !
