Recipe by Chef on the coast
This came from TOH - cooking for a crowd. I was intrigued by the recipe so divided it down for a family of 6. Even my kids love this recipe. I was not a curry fan before trying this and I guiltily admit - I had 3 helpings the first time I made it.

I'm not sure if I did the wrong thing when cooking this... my rice seemed cooked after about 14 minutes, not 25. I added about a cup of water and after that was absorbed, I took it off. I could only find condensed cream of mushroom soup so I used that, I hope it didn't make too much of a difference.The recipe didn't say what type of mushrooms or what type curry powder, I used flat mushrooms and Malaysian curry powder. I baked for the full 50 minutes although that also seemed pretty long? Overall we didn't think this was worth the wait, it wasn't really to our tastes. However I'm sure some people would like it. I can see that it has some flexibility and you could add capsicum or other veggies. Thanks!
