Easy Japanese Home Cooking: Pork Katsu and Curry
6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

The Richard M. Shiff Forum presents this program in collaboration with the Japan Society of Boston.

Katsukare (カツカレー) is a simple Japanese dish consisting of a breaded, deep-fried cutlet served with a Japanese curry sauce over rice. Sometimes the sauce includes vegetables like potatoes, carrots, or onions.

Curry first came to Japan during the Meiji era (1868 - 1912) through the British Navy, which served its sailors curry that was tailored to British tastes. Japanese restaurants started serving curry dishes in the late 19th century, but the dish really caught on in army mess halls as a good way to incorporate meat into troops' diets. Curry was quickly popularized and became a staple within the Japanese diet.

We invite you to make your own katsukare with the help of JSB volunteer Akiko Ghosh. An ingredient list will be emailed with the Zoom information prior to the event. 

 Akiko Ghosh has been living in Boston for over 20 years.  Prior to moving to Boston, she owned an Indian-themed home goods store in Tokyo.  She learned about wonderful Indian items and cuisine through her husband who is from India.  In Boston, she has worked as a relocation consultant helping clients from Japan find a place to live.  She is excited to share about how curry got to Japan and her special recipe of Katsu curry.
