Recommended Recipe – Wagamama Chicken Katsu Curry

One of the enjoyable activities we can do on lockdown (speaking optimistically, of course; there is very little that is positive about this tragic crisis) is to cook, especially when celebrity chefs divulge their secret recipes.  Wagamama, a popular Asian restaurant chain, has recently revealed the recipe for its fabulous Chicken Katsu Curry. This is a mild, sweet Japanese style curry, not spicy, loved by adults and kids alike.
