Skewers of kushikatsu with miso sauce

Kushikatsu (串カツ?), also known as kushiage (串揚げ?), is a Japanese dish of deep-fried skewered meat and vegetables.[1][2] In Japanese, kushi (?) refers to the skewers used[1] while katsu means a deep-fried cutlet of meat.

Kushikatsu can be made with chicken, pork, seafood, and seasonal vegetables.[1] These are skewered on bamboo kushi; dipped in egg, flour, and panko; and deep-fried in vegetable oil. They may be served straight or with tonkatsu sauce.

The Shinsekai neighborhood of Osaka is famous for its kushikatsu.[3] Kushikatsu restaurants specialize in the dish.[4]
