Katsu Curry is a popular Japanese curry dish and it doesn't contain any coconut milk like most of our Southeast Asia's variation of curry. It is usually served over rice with cutlet and katsu simply means cutlet and it can be either chicken or pork cutlet.
Although it is typically served over rice but you can also have it with your favourite udon or ramen.
