A proper fridge-raid meal
Make your own chilli jam using ½ a cup of deseeded chopped fresh chillies, ½ a cup of white wine vinegar, ½ a cup of sugar or apricot jam, and a couple of peeled finely chopped garlic cloves. Simply pop it all in a pan and boil down until thick and syrupy.
– I would normally use basmati rice in this dish, but you could use one of those packs of cooked rice. Or fine rice noodles would be delicious. Or go for a mixture!
– I went for sausage and bacon here because that’s what I had left in the fridge, but absolutely use ham or smoked meat, which is more classic. This recipe is also great for using up cooked leftover meat, whatever you’ve got.
– Use whatever curry paste you’ve got to hand.
– When it comes to the sprinkle, any seeds will do, sesame, flax, pumpkin or sesame, or you could go for crushed nuts like peanuts or cashews, dry roasted nuts or even some crushed wasabi peas. Get creative!
