Katsu Curry with S&B Curry Sauce Mix

313-katsu-curryRich, aromatic curry that’s unmistakably made in Japan

Curry has long been a favourite home-cooked dish in Japan, since its introduction from India via Europe. Its popularity spread with the invention of curry roux, which was made available in innovative cube form in Japan from 1950. The addition of fat means that these cubes, made from curry powder, flour, and seasoning, stay solidified at room temperature. Once added to meat or vegetables, they quickly transform a mundane stew into a mouthwatering curry. These easy-to-use cubes cemented the culture of curry in Japan, with S&B leading the way with its Golden Curry Sauce Mix. This ubiquitous product imparts a rich aroma of spices and herbs and is made with S&B original curry powder.


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 carrot, grated
  • 620ml water
  • 100g S&B Golden Curry Sauce Mix
  • 4 pork loin steaks or chicken breasts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 100g breadcrumbs (preferably panko breadcrumbs)
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Cooked rice to serve


  1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large saucepan, fry the onion and carrot over a medium heat until softened. Add the water, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 mins. Remove from the heat then add the curry sauce mix, in pieces, stir until completely melted. Simmer gently for another 5 mins, stirring constantly.
  2. Season both sides of the pork loin or chicken breasts. Lightly coat with flour, dip in beaten egg and then coat with breadcrumbs.
  3. Heat the remaining oil in a large heavy-based saucepan to 170°C / 340°F. Deep fry the meat for 3-4 minutes each side until golden and cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper.
  4. Slice the meat, drizzle with curry sauce, and serve with cooked rice.
