How to Make a Katsu Curry Using Only Ingredients From McDonalds

By Lifehacker UK on at

Katsu curry is pretty damn awesome, but not all of us live near a good Japanese restaurant (or an Oriental grocer to get authentic supplies to knock it up at home).

Struggling to get his katsu fix, Zef Cherry-Kynaston came up with an ingenious solution - making his own using food bought exclusively from McDonald's.

The 'McKatsu Curry' cost under £8 to put together and used the breaded chicken from a McLegend sandwich plus copious amounts of McDonald's free curry sauce.

What about the rice? Zef's master stroke was to scrape the innards out of Maccy D's hash browns and roll them up to make a convincing rice substitute. After that, it was as simple as garnishing with a bit of side salad.

Pointless? Yes. Awesome? Absolutely.
