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.


4 Servings


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 *grated, you can add grated Parmesan

White Sauce

40g Butter
1/4 cup Plain Flour
2 cups Milk
Salt & Pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 200C.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Lightly Oil a large ovenproof dish, place the rice mixture and pour the White Sauce over. Cover with Cheese, and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
