Easy ‘Katsu Curry’ in a Hurry

This great ‘fakeaway’ is simple to prepare and tastes as good as it looks!  No time to cook the rice? Use left over white rice or ready made pouch of microwave rice (check for syns) as a super quick alternative.

Ingredients – Serves 2

8 Quorn Vegan Nuggets
1 cup of uncooked sticky rice (I use Yutaka Sushi Rice)
36g Mayflower Curry Sauce Powder
Mixed Vegetables to serve


1. Put the rice on to cook according to packet instructions
2. Cook the nuggets according to packet instructions
3. Lightly cook the vegetables in 2 cups of boiling water, for about 5 minutes until just tender. Reserve the cooking liquor.
4. In a small saucepan, tip in the curry powder and mix to a paste with a little cold water. Put on a low heat and gradually stir in half a cup of the reserved cooking liquor. The sauce will thicken as the temperature increases. Keep adding more liquor until you reach your preferred consistency.
5. Push the cooked rice in a little ramekin (sprayed with fry light) and press to form a neat mould, do the same again so you have 2 portions.
6. Pour the curry sauce onto 2 plates, add your mounds of rice, nuggets & vegetables to serve.


Slimming World – 5 syns per serving (using ingredients above)

Quorn Vegan Nuggets = 0.5 syn each
18g of Mayflower Curry Sauce Dry Powder = 3 syns
Vegetables & Rice = synfree

Tip!  Because the endless variations in viscosity of the Mayflower Curry sauce (when made up as directed), unless you’re literally cooking half or the whole entire box, you can very easily under estimate syns which could negatively affect your weight loss.  Instead, weigh out the dry powder before adding any liquid – this way, there is no margin for error.

Ideal vegetarian alternatives you could also use (however, they are not vegan friendly so check labels!)

Quorn Crispy Chicken Style Nuggets, frozen 15 pack = 1 syn each
Quorn Southern Fried Nuggets, frozen 300g pack = 1 syn each
Quorn Chicken Style Burgers in Golden Breadcrumbs, frozen 4 pack (63g each) = 2.5 syns
Quorn Mini Breaded Fillets, frozen 300g pack (20g each) = 1 syn
