Madras rice
Slices of sautéed aubergine and the lovely yellow colour from the curry spices bring a hint of India to this rice dish, given a twist with a little fried ham.

Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 5 min.
Madras rice
Rinse 150 g egg-plant or aubergine and cut into fairly thick slices.

As you can see in the photo, I am using the delicious, long, purple aubergines that are sometimes available. I find them more interesting than the usual dark variety.

Stage 2 - 8 min.
Madras rice
Pour 2 tablespoons olive oil into a large frying pan on high heat. When really hot, add the sliced aubergines.

Brown on both sides, then salt and pepper at the end of cooking.

Set aside.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Madras rice
Use the same pan to fry the ham on both sides.

Set aside.

Stage 4 - 5 min.
Madras rice
Still using the same pan, without washing it (to make the most of the cooking juices left), pour in 125 g liquid cream.

Bring to the boil while deglazing the bottom of the pan thoroughly, then add ½ tablespoon curry powder and mix well.

Stage 5 - 1 min.
Madras rice
Add 200 g cooked rice and mix well...

Stage 6 - 5 min.
Madras rice
...then leave to reduce a little until the rice has absorbed most of the cream.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Madras rice
Finish by adding the ham and aubergines.

Stage 8
Madras rice
Serve without delay.
Remarks
If you find the curry flavour a bit too strong for your liking, you can use turmeric on its own instead.
Keeping
A few days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

In this recipe Morteau sausage is cooked on a bed of potatoes cut into medium sized pieces. The idea of this recipe is that the pricked Morteau sausage cooks slowly, so that its smoky flavour seeps down onto the potatoes - it's a pure delight.
