Comfort Kedgeree

A community recipe by

This is a VERY simple version of the original recipe that was modified by my mother. It tastes delicious and is very easy to prepare - the perfect comfort food! I've listed it as a main course as it is filling and a great supper, but I've also served it in very small portions as a starter (an alternative to risotto!) It's also a great way to use up left over boiled rice


Serves: serves 3-4

  • ½ finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove finely chopped garlic
  • ½ lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • 2 smoked haddock (non dyed)
  • 750 millilitres basmati rice (cooked)
  • 1 handful cilantro
  • 1 handful fresh parsley
  • 4 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3 medium boiled eggs

  • Poach the smoked haddock fillets. Remove from pan and leave to cool at room temperature.
  • Sauté the onion and garlic Add lemon juice, and then the curry powder and turmeric to create a paste. Fold in the cooked rice and season to taste.
  • Break the fish up with fingers, and fold lightly into the rice with the chopped herbs. I usually add a good handful but this depends on personal taste.
  • Stir in the heavy cream, and season again if necessary.
  • Turn into a serving bowl and decorate with quartered hard-boiled eggs and serve.
  • Tell us what you think
