Method

  • Heat a heavy-based pot over medium heat and add ¼ cup of stock. When hot, add shallots, a pinch of salt and sweat (about 5 minutes).
  • Add garlic and stir to combine. When fragrant, add turmeric.
  • When onions and garlic are a dark yellow from turmeric, add rice and toast for 3 minutes. Add remaining stock. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer.
  • When rice is finished cooking, about 40 minutes, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.
  • Combine rice with the mirin and shoyu.  When combined, add almonds, coriander and spring onions.
  • Make the sauce. Place all the ingredients in a blender, add the water a ¼ cup at a time and blend to a cream.
  • Serve hot with a generous topping of the sauce and some fresh greens.
