Wagamama Style: Katsu Chicken Curry

Missing your Wagamama's fix post-lockdown? This Katsu Chicken Curry is soon going to become an all-time favourite!

You will need: (generously serves 2)

(For the Kastu Sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 heaped tablespoon plain flour
  • 250ml chicken stock
  • 75ml milk - coconut milk works best
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
(For the chicken)
  • 2 skinless chicken breasts
  • 50g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 150g panko breadcrumbs
  • 75ml vegetable oil (to deep fry) 
(For a vegetarian alternative you could use sweet potato rather than chicken)
  • Mixed salad leaves
  • 200g rice

The Method: 

1.  Prepare the chicken. Coat in flour, soak in egg then cover in the panko breadcrumbs. I find this works best if you have 3 separate bowls. Make sure you have covered the whole chicken. Put aside while you make the sauce.
2.  For the sauce, preheat a pan with vegetable oil, and throw in the chopped onion, garlic and the ground ginger.
3.  When they have softened, add the turmeric and curry powder and stir to form a dry paste.
4.  Add the flour and after a minute, slowly begin to add the chicken stock. The slower you do this, the smoother the sauce. 
5.  Once all the chicken stock has been added, very slowly add the milk while mixing.
6.  Finally, add the soy sauce, sugar and salt and leave to sit on low heat.
7.  Deep fry the chicken until golden brown. This roughly takes 12 minutes if you turn them over every 1-2 minutes.
8.  Heat your rice and add the salad to the plates.
9.  Slice the chicken into lengths and pour the curry sauce.
10.  Bon appetit!

Advice For New Year 11s

 It has been a funny year for us all. Exams were cancelled for the first time in over 60 years and it was a strange experience indeed. Here, I have a few tips that are specifically going to help the upcoming year 11s, although, I do think anyone can apply them.  I know that I would have loved to see a post like this, this time last year as it is worrying to think about! 1. Use Your Planner Whether it's an ordinary planner issued by your school or an academic diary it is really important that you use this. You will need it to write down dates for exams, deadlines for homework notes so you don't forget items. My planner was a huge help and I have no idea how I would have survived without it. They are issued for a reason so make sure you use them! 2. Keep Yourself Organised This kind of runs off from my previous point, but by simply ensuring that your folders are organised, you are saving yourself a lot of time. Maybe sit down every other week and organise any loose sheets so that

When Shadows Fall - Sita Brahmachari Blog Tour

 Welcome back! Today's blog post is an extra special one, dedicated to Sita Brahmachari's new book, 'When Shadows Fall'.  Aside, from its stunning cover, and the book focuses on the poignant tale of Kai, Orla, Zak and Omid, 4 friends who are in their youths. Sita takes you on a tale through their troublesome teenage years ending at the age of eighteen, post-A-Level Results Day.  The novel is illustrated beautifully by the talented Natalie Sirett , a great friend of Sita's.  The novel follows the lives of this friendship group, 13, 14, 15-year-olds with no place to go, who are outsiders from the rest of society. Sita's aim was to document the children she saw over a period of many years, being outsiders, having no place in the world. This is strongly seen through the character of Kai. Having become friends with Natalie over 25 years ago, when their children were young, this is Sita and Natalie's first book together. Sita described it as 'This book is the

Bi-DEN Trump

 This article is a little outdated but I thought I would post it to the blog this week as a different read, it is related to recent events in America. Enjoy! The article was written in November 2020, a week after a victory was declared for current US president Joe Biden. Image: Well, what an extraordinary year 2020 has been for many of us, impacting us in some way or shape, and for many defining our future! One of the biggest news stories alongside COVID-19 has been the political events that have happened in the US; for many the biggest election in the history of the United States. That’s right, earlier this month over 155 million people voted and used their political voice, the biggest voter turnout ever in the US. Not only this, but a fantastic historical achievement was made; Kamala Harris became the first elected female vice president - an achievement definitely worth celebrating from across the pond! With it being the most talked about and publicised election ever you
