Product Details

A firm favourite among Scots the world over, Kedgeree is thought to have deep historical roots in Indian cuisine, believed to have originated with the Indian rice and lentil dish Khichri, as far back as the 1300s. Thought to have been brought to UK shores by British Colonials returning from India, Kedgeree became a staple breakfast dish in Victorian times. We love to enjoy the combination of fluffy rice and gentle spice at any time of day, paired as easily with haddock as it is with chicken, or even chickpeas, for those who prefer a veggie alternative.

Kit Contains:

Ginger & Garlic Paste Tyga Masala No. 7 Tyga Masala No. 27

You will need to buy: 1 onion 1 bunch coriander 2 chicken breasts 2 eggs 200g basmati rice 25g red split lentils 2 tbsp vegetable oil/rapeseedoil/olive oil 25g butter 1 tsp salt

Prep:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C if you would like to finish off the kedgeree in the oven. It can all be done on the hob if you wish.
  2. Finely dice the onion.
  3. Chop the coriander discarding the stems.
  4. Chop the chicken breasts into bite size chunks.
  5. Hard-boil the eggs.
  6. In a bowl, soak the rice and lentils in hot tap water for 10 minutes. Drain.

Cook:

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan with a lid, or a casserole dish, over a high heat and add onion, ginger & garlic paste and salt. Stir continuously for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Lower heat to medium and add Tyga Masala No. 7 and Tyga Masala No. 27 (.5 tsp for mild, 1 tsp for medium and 1.5 tsp for hot). Mix well and stir for 2 minutes.
  3. Add the diced chicken and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Add drained rice and lentils, stir well and add 400ml water. Bring to the boil, cover and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  6. Add butter and half the coriander and re-cover with lid for 2 minutes.
  7. Stir well and remove from the heat. De-shell the eggs and cut them into wedges and place on top of the rice along with the remaining coriander.
