    This is a traditional British breakfast from colonial India and is a lovely little dish,with a nice balance of spicy and smoky flavours.It makes a tasty lunch or supper too -so get stuck in.

      10 out of 10. I bought some smoked cobbler fish and tried this recipe, my husband was not looking forward to this as I had cooked fish about 5 times this week. What a fantastic surprise, the taste was amazing, not like any other Kedgeree recipe I have ever tried. I used frozen corriander as I didn't have any fresh and I used 'Lazy garlic, ginger and chilli' but the end result was brilliant and I will deffinately be cooking this again, and again and again! My husband was well impressed.

      Very successful - made as written (including fresh bay leaves from the garden). Excellent recipe and so good to be able to prepare it in advance

      There are a number of recipes available on the Internet and the spicier nature of this one appeals to the present British palate - Indian curries replaced the more traditional fish and chips a long time ago...!
