Our friend from India, Lavender, celebrated her birthday last Tuesday, August 18, but since we meet every Wednesday for Bible study, we decided to have dinner together at our apartment. She promised us the goodness of her Indian curry. I asked Rebecca over at Chow and Chatter for some tips on what`s best to pair the curry with because her mother-in-law is visiting from India. She had an interesting suggestion but I promised to try it some other time as I didn`t have time to prepare it. So instead, I went the Japanese way (or Indian way) and made some katsu (like tonkatsu) to go with Lav`s egg curry. The recipe for egg curry would have to be posted later as soon as Lav takes a short break from her protein and cloning experiments.
This type of katsu is what I always order for lunch at the university cafeteria. Sasami Cheese Katsu or Chicken Fillet Cutlets. As in my post for Cheese Tonkatsu or Pork Cutlets, the procedure is the same. The only difference is, I used Chicken Fillet. Served with shredded fresh cabbage, and good company, again, more rice!
Oh and Lav`s cake was my very first attempt at making a birthday cake! It was a blueberry jam cake with Fresh Cream with blueberry yoghurt frosting. More birthdays to come Lav! Mangantayon!
