When we speak of Japanese cuisine, all we can think of is sushi and ramen. In reality, this flavourful cuisine is quite extensive, with many distinctive varieties. One of the most popular Japanese dishes is katsu curry. Katsu is translated to cutlet, in this case, a breaded chicken cutlet which is then placed upon a mildly sweet and thick Japanese curry. It is usually served with rice and tastes amazing. This fundamentally non-vegetarian dish is something vegetarians are certainly missing out on. Well, not anymore! Chef Saransh Goila has come up with an innovative Jackfruit Katsu Curry recipe and we are drooling at the sight of it.
