Katsu mayo time. Add 8 tablespoons of mayo to a bowl. Add ¾ of a veggie stock cube, a teaspoon of garam masala, 2 teaspoons of curry powder and a tablespoon of runny honey. Mix well and set aside.
Zingy slaw. Grate your radishes and half a cabbage. Add to a bowl with 2 teaspoons of sesame oil, the juice of a lime and a large handful of chopped coriander. Mix everything together and set aside.
Chicken. Get three bowls out. Add flour to one, 2 eggs to another (whisk them up), and breadcrumbs to the third. Dip your chicken thigh in flour, then the eggs, then breadcrumbs.
Get a pan on the heat and add a very large glug of vegetable oil. Once oil is hot, add your chicken thighs. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until the breadcrumbs are golden. Keep turning the chicken until it is cooked through.
Toast your brioche buns.
Assembly time. Add a very large dollop of katsu mayo to your bun. Then add your chicken. Then add a large spoonful of the zingy slaw. Dollop some more katsu mayo on the top half of the bun, and place that on top of the burger. Take a bite and enjoy!
