I used to make ‘Curry Doria’ when I had left-over Curry and cooked Rice. It’s quite simple to make. Mix the left-over Curry and cooked Rice, loosely fill a baking dish, cover with White Sauce and some shredded Cheese, and bake in the oven until golden. However, I rarely have left-over Curry and Rice these days, thanks to my family with a good appetite. So I made ‘Curry Doria’ in a different way.
500g Beef, Pork OR Chicken *This time I used Beef Mince.
1 Onion *finely chopped
1-2 cloves Garlic *finely chopped
1/2 Carrot *cut into small pieces
8 Mushrooms *sliced
1 tablespoon Canola Oil
1 teaspoon Salt
1 tablespoon Curry Powder
4 servings Cooked Rice
1-2 teaspoons Oil *for greasing the baking dish
1 cup Tasty Cheese *shredded
1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese *grated, optional
1/4 cup Plain Flour
2 & 1/2 cups Milk
Salt & Pepper
- Preheat oven to 200C.
- Heat Oil in a large frying pan, cook Onion and Garlic until aromatic, add Beef and Carrot, then add Mushrooms. Season with Salt and Curry Powder. Add Cooked Rice and combine well.
- To make White Sauce, heat Butter in a saucepan over medium heat until melted and foaming, add Flour and cook stirring until mixture bubbles. Slowly add Milk, stirring constantly until sauce boils and thickens.
- Lightly Oil a large ovenproof dish, place the rice mixture and pour the White Sauce over. Sprinkle with Cheeses, and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
