Crispy Tofu Katsu Curry

I donā€™t know about you, but a crispy Katsu Curry is my idea of some serious comfort food. Iā€™ve made this simple curry sauce made using Lifeforce almond butter to top this recipe off. The curry sauce is so delicious over this crispy tofu but also over vegetables, chips, and anything really!

This post is in collaboration with Lifeforce.Ā

Cooks in 30 Minutes


2 portions of cooked riceĀ 

1 400g block tofu slice down the centre lengthwaysĀ 



50g plain flourĀ 

80ml almond milk or any other non-dairy milkĀ 

Pinch of saltĀ 

1 tsp pepperĀ 

2 slices of bread blended to make breadcrumbs

4-6 tbsp oil of choice to fryĀ 



350 ml almond milk or other non-dairy milkĀ 

5 tbsp lifeforce smooth almond butterĀ 

1.5 tbsp curry spiceĀ 

1 tbsp tomato pasteĀ 

1 tbsp tamari sauce or soya sauce


Serve withĀ 

Pickled cucumber



Leafy greensĀ 


Slice the tofu and wrap in some kitchen paper or a tea towel. Place a weight (book/saucepan etc) on top to help strain out any excess liquid for about 15-20 mins.



In a large flat bowl combine the flour, almond milk, and seasoning.

Place the tofu in the bowl and coat in the mix, turning to cover all sides letting it absorb into the tofu.

Afterward coat the tofu in the breadcrumbs pressing them in with your fingertips all over.

Get your frying pan ready over high heat and add a good helping of oil. Once itā€™s sizzling add the tofu and cook for about 3-4 minutes ether side until itā€™s a lovely golden-brown colour.



In a saucepan add the almond milk, almond butter, curry spice, tomato paste, and tamari and combine well.

Place the saucepan over medium-high heat until it comes to a steady simmer.

Stir and let simmer for about 12-15 minutes it will be thickening up throughout this time.

Remove from the heat and let sit for 5-8 minutes where it will thicken even more! It should be a thick curry consistency.

Serve up by adding your cooking rice sliced breaded tofu, any additional toppings, and drizzling over your lovely almond curry sauce!
