Kedgeree is a hugely popular dish from the days of the Raj. It’s based on Khichdi - an Indian dish of rice, lentils and spices - which the Victorians adjusted by toning down the spices and adding the solidly British ingredients of boiled eggs and smoked fish.

I have cooked this recipe a couple of times and love the results. All the flavours and textures work so well together. This is ironic as I grew up not liking fish, particularly smoked haddock! The only downside I have discovered is that the egg doesn’t freeze well. If you intend freezing this dish, I’d recommend that you chop the two eggs that get mixed in fairly small and omit the two half eggs that sit on top.

Add the eggs after defrosting. Genius! I wish I'd thought of that!


Another fabulous dish from “Curry Legend World Curries” Book. Tasty and quick to make definitely will make again

Ooh this looks lovely! So fresh and flavoursome!
