About this recipe: Kedgeree, a traditional Anglo-Indian dish of rice and smoked fish, is perfect for brunch, lunch or a light supper. It is also tasty cool as a salad. Serve with seeded wholegrain bread or warm naan bread.
Peas, like other legumes such as lentils, soya beans and chickpeas, are a good source of protein. Peas are also rich in fibre, some of which is in the soluble form which can help to regulate blood sugar and cholesterol levels in our bodies. * Eggs provide high-quality protein as well as zinc, vitamins A, D and E and B vitamins. Although eggs contain cholesterol, the health risks of eating eggs have often been exaggerated. Normally, dietary cholesterol has little effect on blood cholesterol levels. It is the intake of saturated fat that affects blood cholesterol.
For a fruity flavour, stir 55 g (2 oz) raisins or sultanas into the rice with the fish. * Use brown basmati rice instead of white and cook for about 20 minutes before adding the peas. * Add 100 g (3½ oz) sautéed sliced mushrooms with the flaked fish. * Make a mixed seafood kedgeree. Use 150 g (5½ oz) smoked haddock and add 170 g (6 oz) cooked mussels or oysters. If using freshly cooked mussels, about 450 g (1 lb) in the shell, use the mussel cooking juices as part of the liquid to cook the rice. Canned and drained mussels or oysters can also be added. Another idea is to use 140 g (5 oz) each smoked haddock and poached or steamed skinless fresh haddock or cod fillet. * Omit the grilled tomatoes and serve the kedgeree with a salad made from diced cucumber and halved cherry tomatoes.

By following this recipe you will be left with a bland rice dish, feel you have wasted good fish that you went out and brought, your guests will think you cant even follow a recipe and a waste of food!!! I just hope the person who put this on will follow the recipe step by step......and eventually throw there 50mins of hard work in the bin likw I did..... - 27 Jun 2012
The quantities are all wrong. It needs less rice, proportionately more oil and fish stock and much more spices. - 13 Jul 2011
Tasty but not very spicy: I want to make this again but next time I will double up on all the spices - at least! Possibly even triple them. - 10 Feb 2012
