This sweet potato katsu curry is the ultimate vegan Japanese curry to prepare when you crave a hearty and flavourful dish yet loaded with healthy ingredients.
We have replaced the classic chicken with an oven-baked sweet potato katsu prepared with a coating of fiber-rich wholemeal flour and omega-3 loaded ‘flaxegg’. And, of course, crispy panko breadcrumbs! Baking the sweet potatoes instead of deep-frying them helps to keep the fat content of this recipe low.
Sweet potatoes are a true superfood as they contain free radicals-fighting antioxidants, including vitamin A which boosts your immune system and skin health. Moreover, they are rich in fibres which make you feel full for longer.
The Japanese curry is a velvety sauce made with root vegetables and a spicy blend of curry and gram masala. We have added sliced mushrooms for extra flavour and nutrition as they provide vitamins B and D, which might lack in vegan diets.
