Ingredients

  • 300g brown basmati rice
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 12 green cardamom pods, split open
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric
  • 10cm piece cinnamon stick
  • 3 fresh bay leaves
  • 600ml fresh chicken stock
  • 300g hot-smoked salmon, skinned and flaked
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar
  • 4 fresh medium eggs

Method

  1. Cover the rice with water and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook gently over a medium heat for 5 minutes, until soft but not browned. Add the cardamom, turmeric, cinnamon and bay leaves and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Drain the rice, add to the pan and stir well. Add the stock and a little seasoning, bring to the boil and stir once to release any rice from the bottom of the pan. Cover with a lid, reduce the heat to low and cook gently for 30 minutes.
  3. Uncover the rice and remove the bay leaves, cinnamon and cardamom pods. Gently fork in the hot-smoked salmon, cover again and return to a low heat for 5 minutes or until the fish is heated through. Gently stir in the parsley and season to taste. Keep warm by covering with foil.
  4. Meanwhile, bring a medium-size pan of water to the boil, then lower the heat so that just a few bubbles are rising. Add the vinegar. Break 1 egg into a teacup. Swirl the water with a spoon to make a whirlpool and slide the egg into the centre to poach gently for 21/2 minutes. Lift onto kitchen paper to drain, then keep warm on a plate while you cook the remaining eggs (confident cooks can cook all the eggs at the same time).
  5. Divide the kedgeree between warmed plates, top with a poached egg and serve immediately.
