4. Add the sushi rice and cook covered over medium heat for 10 minutes. If necessary, add water.

6. Pour the coconut milk over curry and place in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes.

– Another type of meat can be used instead of smoked ham. We had smoked ham leftovers after grapes picking; therefore, I used it.
– We use sushi rice because it cooks better into the dish. Also white, basmati or black rice can be used and the cooking time adapted accordingly.
– Baking step in the oven can be skipped and consequently increase the cooking time by an additional 5-10 minutes.
