First, set your oven to preheat to 200°c.
Then cook your rice according to the pack, this usually takes 15- 25mins. Once cooked leave the rice to one side, we will come back to it later.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan, sauté the onions then pour in the 700ml of water followed by the potatoes and carrot chucks and leave to boil gently with the lid on. Keep an eye on it and reduce the heat if it starts to boil over.
Next, in a frying pan, gently heat the panko breadcrumbs with 1/2 tbsp of oil on medium heat being careful to not let it burn. Be sure to move the panko in the pan a little to ensure an even colour. Once the panko breadcrumbs are golden brown, transfer them to a shallow plate.
On a chopping board, prepare the pork cutlets by pounding them with the back of your knife. This will tenderise the pork cutlets by breaking down connective tissues and make the meat less tough when it cooks. Do this in a crisscross pattern and then mould them back into their original shape with your hands and season with salt and pepper if you wish.
Next, you will panko your cutlets. Dip your pork cutlets into the flour then the whisked eggs and then the panko breadcrumbs making sure at each stage you get a good covering.
Place the panko breadcrumb covered pork cutlets on to a wire rack and bake in the preheated oven for 18-20mins until cooked through. Adjust timing according to the thickness of your cutlets. Once cooked, remove the tonkatsu from the oven and leave to stand on the wire rack for 5 minutes.
Now, return to your saucepan of boiling vegetable, they should now be cooked through. Check by poking a knife or a chopstick in to a carrot or potato chuck to see if it goes all the way through. If not, leave to boil a little longer.
Once cooked, drain away about 3/4 of the water leaving the remaining water in the saucepan. For a thinner curry sauce, leave more of the water in with the vegetables.
Next, empty both sachets of Miso Tasty Curry Sauce into the saucepan and return to a medium heat whilst gently stirring with a wooden spoon to combine. Leave to cook for a further 4-5 minutes.
