Doria (Rice Gratin) with Curry Pilaf and White Sauce step by step
- Prepare for 2 servings of curry pilaff. Slice the tomato into 1 cm thickness. Cut the broccoli into bite sizes and cook until al dente..
- Mix the ★ panko and curry powder. Use curry powder without extra seasonings. The curry powder with extra seasonings burns quickly..
- Melt butter over low heat. Add plain flour and stir well to remove lumps. At first you might think it's too thick, but it will get runny by stirring with a whisk while cooking..
- After the roux is smooth, add milk little by little and stir constantly. At first it hardens as you add milk, but it will soften gradually. Ensure that there are no lumps and add the rest of the milk..
- Add a bay leaf if you have for flavouring. Stir constantly until comes to a boil and thickens. Adjust the taste with the ☆ seasonings and the white sauce is done..
- If you don't use the sauce straight away, cover tightly with cling film directly on top of the mixture to prevent a film from forming..
- Preheat the oven to 445-480°F/230-250°C..
- Put the curry pilaf in an oven-proof dish and pour over the white sauce to cover. Put the tomato, broccoli and easy melting cheese. Sprinkle the ★ panko on top..
- Put the dish on the top shelf of the oven and bake for 10 to 15 minutes until the cheese is melted and browned..
- It's very nice to eat while piping hot. Just don't burn yourself..

As you may have guessed by the name, doria is not a traditional Japanese dish. Layer the rice with the white sauce. Add the meat sauce to the centre. Sprinkle the hard cheese (Pecorino or Parmesan) and your preferred melting cheese (such as cheddar or gouda) over the top. The classic sauce is Bechamel sauce, also known as white sauce.
