Spinach & Mushroom Yaki Kare – Japanese Curry: The Leftover Series
In particular for all our vegetarian fans, we proudly present Yaki Kare (Baked Curry) based on our Japanese curry with Spinach and Mushrooms.
All you need for this yummy next-day meal is some grated cheese and a small oven-proof casserole dish. Adding an optional egg baked on top is a pretty nice addition as well.
You can pick any cheese you want – an couple of options we like are Mexican blends or Italian blends found in a regular grocery store. Cheddar cheese (either mild or sharp) and Swiss work as well.
Start with a layer of leftover rice lining the bottom of the casserole dish.
Next spread a generous layer of the curry over the rice.
Sprinkle the cheese of your choice over the curry.
Pop under the broiler for approximately 2-3 minutes, until bubbly and golden brown.
If you want to top with an egg, create a “nest” in your layer of cheese. Crack open the egg and gently drop into the cheese nest.
Bake in the oven at 300F for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through to the level of “doneness” you like.
