Tonkatsu as a fried pork cutlet was probably inspired by Western cuisine and was introduced to Japan during the modernization period in the 19th century. Tonkatsu became a popular dish, hence the need for a suitable sauce to flavour it. Tonkatsu sauce was developed in Japan and over time became an indispensable addition to this dish and other fried foods. Today, Tonkatsu sauce is widely available in Asian grocery stores and is popular not only in Japan but also in various parts of the world where Japanese cuisine is popular.
