Japanese pumpkin curry
- 1Cut pumpkin into four 2cm thick wedges. Remove seeds and skin. Steam pumpkin 10 minutes or until tender, turning halfway. Pat pumpkin pieces dry with absorbent paper.
- 2Toss pumpkin in flour; shake off excess. In a shallow bowl, lightly beat two of the eggs; dip pumpkin into egg, then coat in breadcrumbs. Place on a baking-paper-lined oven tray.
- 3In a medium saucepan, bring rice water and salt to the boil over high heat. Cover with a tight-fitting lid; cook over low heat 8 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from heat.
- 4In a medium saucepan, meanwhile, heat half the oil over medium; cook onion, stirring, 3 minutes or until softened. Stir in curry mix and the extra water; cook 5 minutes. Stir in edamame; cook 2 minutes or until heated through.
- 5In a small saucepan, place remaining eggs and enough cold water to cover. Bring to the boil, stirring, to centre the yolks. Simmer, uncovered, 2 minutes for soft-boiled. Drain; rinse eggs under cold water until cool enough to handle. Peel eggs.
- 6In a large frying pan, heat remaining oil over medium; cook pumpkin 2 minutes each side or until golden.
- 7Fluff rice with a fork. Divide rice between serving bowls; spoon curry to the side. Top with pumpkin and torn eggs; sprinkle with seeds.
Both Japanese curry mix and frozen edamame (soy beans in the pod) are available from Asian supermarkets. You will need to shell about 300g (9½ ounces) frozen edamame in the pod for this recipe.
