Tonkatsu (Breaded pork loin)

Serves 4
4 pork loin fillets ( can be replaced with chicken as well)
1 egg
1 cup of flour
2 cups of panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
Cooking oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Tonkatsu sauce (available at Choithram’s)
(how much) Shredded cabbage, to serve
A small portion of takuan (Japanese mooli radish pickle, available at Spinney’s)

Tenderise the pork fillets and set aside.

Prepare three shallow bowls by placing the flour – seasoned with salt and pepper - in the first bowl. In the  second bowl, add beaten eggs, and in the third place the panko bread crumbs. Place the pork in the flour  and shake off any excess. Coat it in the egg, and lastly in the bowl of panko, making sure that it is fully coated.

Heat oil in a pan and fry. Set aside on a paper towel to drain oil, and serve with tonkatsu sauce drizzled on  top of the pork meat, the shredded cabbage and a side of takuan.
