DIRECTIONS

  • Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the garlic, onions and apples.
  • Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Pour over 1 cup of the water and bring to a simmer.
  • Stir in the banana, honey, turmeric, curry powder and ketchup.
  • Add the chicken broth and bring the sauce to boil. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix the cornstarch with the remaining cup water, and add to the curry sauce.
  • Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Tip the sauce into a large sieve or colander placed over a bowl, reserving any katsu curry sauce that drips into the bowl.
  • While the sauce is cooking, prepare the chicken breasts.
  • With a sharp knife, make two diagonal slashes across each breast and coat the chicken in flour on both sides.
  • Dip each chicken portion in beaten egg, and then roll them in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat the oil in a wok and deep fry the chicken, two pieces at a time, for 3-4 minutes, until golden and crisp.
  • Remove from the pan, drain on absorbent paper and keep warm while you finish making the curry.
  • For the vegetable curry, melt the butter in a separate saucepan, and add the onions, carrots and potatoes.
  • Stir and fry for 5-8 minutes, over a moderate heat, until just beginning to turn golden.
  • Pour in the prepared katsu curry sauce, bring to a boil and simmer for 4-5 minutes.
  • Slice the chicken breasts into strips and serve with a heap of steamed rice.
  • Accompany with the piping hot vegetable curry sauce.
