I will freely admit this is a kedgeree for cheats. When you’ve had a hard day, perhaps things haven’t exactly gone to plan, or you’re having hot flushes – you know the sort of thing. Well, this comforting kedgeree can be knocked up in just a few minutes, so it won’t be long before you are sitting down to this warming dish, accompanied by a hearty glass of red perhaps, and pretty soon you will be feeling much better.
CREAMY COMFORTING KEDGEREE
Ingredients serves 4
2 packs microwaveable rice
Small pack coriander, finely chopped
4 haddock fillets
Milk (enough to cover fish)
Box quails eggs or 4 organic hens eggs
Large onion, chopped
Tbspn olive oil
Medium curry powder, 2 – 4 tspns according to taste
Black onion seeds (optional)
Hard boil eggs and leave to cool before de-shelling. If using hens eggs, quarter them.
Heat oil in deep frying pan and add onion, cooking until soft.
Microwave rice (usually takes 4 mins)
Meanwhile, put haddock into saucepan and cover with milk, bring to a simmer and cook for 5 mins, then leave to cool. De-skin and flake haddock.
Add curry powder to onion, stir and then add heated rice, flaked haddock and coriander. Gently fold in the eggs. Add enough of the milk to make as creamy consistency as you prefer and stir until everything is heated through.
Plop onto warmed plates and get stuck in.
