Tofu Katsu Curry

This looks like chicken, right? It is actually tofu and here is my attempt of making a tofu katsu curry which is the vegetarian and vegan alternative to the mighty chicken katsu curry.

It tastes the same, if not better, which largely depends on the curry sauce.

Also, the tofu has been coated in breadcrumbs and baked in the oven.

This recipe is a simplified version and can be easy to make, or prep for the week ahead. I can confirm this is a very tasty lunch idea for work or a healthy dinner option.
