  • 1 2/3 cups (415mL) hot water
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella
  • 1/4 cup Greek-style natural yoghurt, to serve

Butter Chicken Topping

  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 350 g chicken breast fillet, cubed
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter chicken paste
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese

  1. Pre-heat oven to 200C (180C fan-forced). Line a 30cm diameter pizza tray or round baking dish with non-stick baking paper.

  2. Place rice packet contents and hot water into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, stirring. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir, cover again, and set aside to allow to cool for 10 minutes.

  3. In a large bowl combine cooled rice, egg and cheese. Press mixture evenly over base of prepared pizza tray. Bake for 25 minutes

  4. Meanwhile make the butter chicken topping: Heat butter in a frying pan over medium heat, until melted. Add onions and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until softened and golden. Add chicken and garlic and cook for 3-5 minutes until browned. Stir in butter chicken curry paste and cook, stirring, for 1 minutes or until fragrant. Reduce heat to low. Stir in cream and simmer for a further 6-8 minutes or until chicken is tender and sauce has thickened slightly.

  5. Spoon chicken mixture over baked rice base. Sprinkle with extra mozzarella cheese. Bake for 8 minutes or until cheese is golden and melted. Top with a few dollops of yoghurt and garnish with onion and coriander. Cut into slices and serve with salad. Recipe & Image created by Foodies of Australia.
