Okay I might be onto something genius here!

Take your typical wagamamma katsu curry, swap chicken for aubergine, and now put your curry sauce through noodles instead! Presenting

Aubergine katsu noods! 💚

The noodles soaked up all the gorgeous asian-y spicy sauce, and make a lighter alternative to the normal rice.

I absolutely love using aubergine instead of chicken. Because of its porous texture, it’s a perfect sponge for soaking up that gorgeous curry sauce. It also allows the breadcrumbs to crips up a treat!

You can alter the spice in your curry sauce by adding more chilli if you prefer more of a kick.
