Tempeh Katsu Curry

There's a good reason why katsu curry is so popular! After all, who could resist the combination of crunchy, breadcrumb-coated tempeh served with a richly flavoured katsu sauce? Typically made with chicken or vegetables, this vegan tempeh katsu curry recipe swaps meat for tempeh thanks to its firm and meaty texture. Served on a bed of sticky rice and garnish with chilli flakes and spring onions for a restaurant-quality meal right in your own home.

Ingredients

(Servings: 2)

  • 0.5 0.5 Tiba Tempeh Block 200g
  • 3 3 Tbsp panko breadcrumbs
  • Cooked rice to serve
  • Sesame seeds & chilli flakes to garnish
  • For the flour mix:
  • 2 2 Tbsp plain flour
  • 1 1 tsp curry powder
  • 50 50 ml plant milk
  • For the sauce:
  • 0.5 0.5 small onion, chopped
  • 1 1 carrots, chopped
  • 0.5 0.5 Tbsp curry powder
  • 0.5 0.5 tsp garam masala
  • 1 1 garlic cloves
  • 0.5 0.5 Tbsp plain flour
  • 175 175 ml vegetable stock
  • 1 1 Tbsp coconut cream
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Method

  1. First make the sauce. Cook the onion in a little oil until softened. Cook or steam the carrots until soft. Then in a blender, blitz the cooked onion and carrots, and all sauce ingredients until smooth.
  2. Cook the rice if it’s not already cooked.
  3. Prepare the flour mix in a small bowl and place the panko breadcrumbs into another bowl.
  4. Cut the tempeh into round ‘steaks’ about 1cm thick. Dip the tempeh into the flour mix, let them gently drip off any excess and then gently coat in the breadcrumbs.
  5. Pre-heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the tempeh until golden on both sides. Be gentle and move it as little as possible once they’re in the pan.
  6. Serve the rice, tempeh and katsu sauce, and garnish with sesame seeds & chilli flakes, and enjoy!
