Method
 
Step 1
Fry the spices for around 2 - 3 minutes in a dry frying pan. Grind to a powder in a pestle & mortar.
 
Step 2
Heat the oil in the same frying pan (this way you will get all the leftover flavour from the spices!). Throw in the onions and fry for around 8 - 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Add the chili, garlic, ginger, turmeric & chopped tomatoes.
 
Step 3
Bring to the boil. Add the stock and simmer for 25 minutes.
 
Step 4
Leave to cool slightly, then blend the mixture until smooth. Stir in the the honey and soy sauce and keep warm until ready to serve.
 
Step 5
Now for the chicken. Prepare by sprinkling the flour and breadcrumbs onto separate plates and beat the eggs in a bowl.
 
Step 6
Dredge the chicken pieces in the flour. Dip into the egg and coat in breadcrumbs making sure to shake off any excess.
 
Step 7
Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat. Fry the chicken pieces for 2 - 3 minutes on each side, or until golden brown. Remove from pan and set aside to drain on kitchen paper.
 
Step 8
Cook the sliced carrots in a pan of boiling water for 4 - 5 minutes, or until tender, and then drain.
 
Step 9
To serve, Stir the cooked carrots and spring onions into the curry sauce. Spoon the sauce over a bed of fluffy rice and top with the fried chicken pieces.
 
Enjoy your delicious Chicken Katsu Curry... our mouths are watering  just thinking about it!!
