Crispy golden brown crust enveloping juicy tender sake flavoured chicken meat between 2 perfectly pan seared brown rice patties just screams Chicken Katsu Burger. The hero of the dish is the rice. The rice should be sticky, chewy and moist enough to form a perfect rice patty without breaking apart when it’s pan seared. We would say brown rice burger patties are the new burger buns.
The layers of fragrant rice patty with crispy crunchy katsu burger, tomatoes and lettuce with a generous drizzle of tonkatsu sauce plus furikake topping will please any hungry tummy!
Those who find conventional brown rice rough and dry will be glad to know that Kinmemai Better Brown™ has a smooth texture, taste that is indistinguishable from white rice, and is easy-to-digest! Packed with vitamins, benefits include 14 times more Vitamin E and six times more LPS (natural immune system booster) than conventional white rice.
