How to make easy homemade Katsu sauce

There’s nothing quite like a good katsu sauce. Thick, savoury, and slightly sweet, it’s the perfect accompaniment to any katsu dish. And while you can find katsu sauce at most Japanese Wagamama restaurants, there’s nothing quite like homemade. Luckily, it’s easy to make your own katsu sauce at home with just a few simple ingredients.

The key to a good sauce is balance. You want a sauce that is thick enough to stick to your katsu but not so thick that it overpowers the dish. The perfect katsu sauce should be slightly sweet, with a depth of flavour from the addition of soy sauce and mirin. And, of course, a good sauce should always be served piping hot. So if you’re looking for the perfect katsu curry sauce recipe, look no further. This homemade recipe has everything you need for a delicious, balanced sauce that will make your next katsu dish even more delicious.

  • STEP 1: Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onions until soft (8-10 minutes). Add the garlic and fry for another minute. Add the grated carrots and curry powder and mix well.
  • STEP 2: After a few minutes, add the flour and mix through. Slowly add the chicken stock and mix with a handheld whisk to ensure there are no lumps.
  • STEP 3: Simmer for 10-15 minutes until it starts to thicken. Take off the heat and blitz with a hand blender until smooth.
  • STEP 4: Return to the heat and continue to simmer. Add the soy sauce and honey and mix through. If it becomes too thick, add a little water.
  • Serve with chicken and sticky rice or veggie tofu and rice.
