Quick Kedgeree

Who's for breakfast?

We're having Kedgeree. It's a perfectly Perfect Health Diet dish.

From Wiki: "Kedgeree is thought to have originated with an Indian rice-and-bean or rice-and-lentil dish Khichri (or Pongal), traced back to 1340 or earlier. It is widely believed that the dish was brought to the United Kingdom by returning British colonials who had enjoyed it in India and introduced it to the UK as a breakfast dish in Victorian times, part of the then fashionable Anglo-Indian cuisine."

Kedgeree is made with smoked haddock, but really ... any fish will do. This is a leftover dish and I happened to have both smoked and unsmoked haddock. Use what you have - canned fish will do fine.

Suppose you have some leftover rice from the night before ... just fry it off with some chopped onion in your favourite fat (I went with coconut oil here), adding in turmeric, cayenne pepper, possibly cumin and coriander, maybe fenugreek and asafoetida, certainly chillies, some peas or chopped green beans and whatever seafood you have.

Made up from scratch, simply boil some white rice in fish stock.

Serve with a boiled egg alongside.

Breakfast sorted!

Time to get out there and enjoy the day ...
