Cook rice

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Add rice, half the broth concentrate, 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.


Meanwhile, peel, then halve carrot lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Peel, then cut shallot into 1/4-inch pieces. Add panko to a shallow dish. Pat pork dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, then coat pork with half the mayo (use all for 4 ppl).Working with one pork chop at a time, press both sides into panko to coat completely.

Cook pork

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then pork. Sear until golden-brown, 2-3 min per side. While pork sears, brush a foil-lined baking sheet with 1/2 tbsp oil (use same for 4 ppl). Transfer pork to the prepared baking sheet. Roast in the top of the oven until cooked through, 6-8 min.** Carefully wipe the pan clean.

Start curry

Heat the same pan over medium-high. Add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then swirl the pan until melted. Add shallots and carrots. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly softened, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper. Add tomato sauce base, Dal Spice Blend and flour. Cook, stirring often, until spices are fragrant and veggies are coated, 30 sec.

Finish curry

Stir peas, soy sauce mirin blend, remaining broth concentrate, 1 cup water and 1/4 tsp sugar (dbl both for 4 ppl) into the pan with veggies. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, reduce heat to medium. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender, 5-7 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Finish and serve

Add 2 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl) to the pot with rice, then fluff with a fork until butter melts. Thinly slice pork. Divide rice and curry between plates. Top with pork.
