  • tick2-3 baby carrots, sliced (we love Wilcox)
  • tick1 apple, cut into small pieces
  • tick2 tsp Chantal Organics Apple Syrup

  • tick1 tsp Garam Masala
  • tickA drizzle of cooking oil (we love using Chantal Organics Coconut Oil)

  • To serve
  • tick4 portions cooked rice (we love SunRice)
  • tickA bunch of Asian greens such as Kailaan, blanched (we love The Fresh Grower)
  • tickA handful micro herbs, optional


  • Step 1.

    Heat a drizzle of oil in a deep non-stick frying pan over medium high heat. Add onion and sauté until almost translucent. Add garlic and ginger. Stir fry for a further 2 minutes. Add the carrot, apple, curry powder and garam masala. Continue to stir fry for 1 minute.

  • Step 2.

    Add a cup of water and lower the heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the onion, carrots and apples are very soft. In a small bowl, dissolve miso with a little cooking liquid from the pan then mix in along with soy sauce and brown rice syrup. Taste and season with salt & pepper. Blend in a blender or with a hand held blender to make a smooth curry sauce.

  • Step 3.

    While the curry is cooking make the tofu katsu. In a shallow bowl, mix flour and water to make a “glue”. Dip the tofu in the flour mixture, then coat with the breadcrumb coating mix. Make sure each tofu slice is completely covered with breadcrumbs. Deep fry in medium hot oil until crisp and golden. Drain on kitchen towel and set aside.

  • Step 4.

    Serve tofu katsu on a bed of rice and curry sauce with blanched greens.
