Instructions
  1. Using a large frying pan, melt the butter, then sweat the onions on mid/low heat.
  2. Add the rice and heat up. You don’t want to brown it as it will dry out your dish. You may wish to add some chicken stock if your rice has dried out in the fridge.
  3. In the meantime, poach the fish in hot milk for five minutes and drain just before adding to the frying pan.
  4. When the rice is ready, stir in the flaked fish, chopped eggs, curry powder, nutmeg and pepper, using a fork to stir the flaked fish (to prevent the rice from breaking up).
  5. Kedgeree is often served with softly scrambled eggs but you may prefer mashed potatoes.
