Japanese kitchen is not just the commercial world of sushi! In Finland Japanese kitchen is too often considered so.
When my aussie man wanted to surprise me with some Japanese Tonkatsu Curry, I had no idea what to expect. I had only heard some stories about his auntie’s japanese husband and his tonkatsu curry, but that was all. After finishing the dinner, I hardly found any adjectives to decribe how enjoyable flavours I just experienced. Surprisingly, this dish consists of the most common and simple ingredients and still its taste is addictive and incredibly delicious. Douzo meshiagare!
4 pork fillets
3 garlic cloves
1 big sweet potato
1 curry cube ( 75-100g Golden Curry or House Vermont Curry, medium or medium hot)
1 apple (cruhed)
1 tbsp yellow curry powder
Cut the veggies into uneven cubes. Cook the onions and crushed garlic cloves in a sauce pan. Place the veggies in a sauce pan and add some water to cover them. Start cooking them. Let it boil in a low temperature. Add some curry powder. When the veggies are softer, add the curry cube, mix so that the cube melts and incorporates into water. Let it cook for a while. Add the cruhed apple in the end.
Take few egg yolks and mix them in a plate. Roll the fillets in it so that the flours and breadcrumbs stick on them. Cook them on a frying pan. Add so much vegetable oil that they are almost fried but not totally under the oil. Cut the fillets into small slices before serving so that one is able to enjoy the meal by using chopsticks.
Serve fillets, with jasmin rice and home-made tonkatsu sauce.
This dish is perfect when you wanna serve something special for your guests!
