Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Knob of butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • 2 tsp garam masala
  • 350g long grain rice, rinsed well under cold water
  • 700ml vegetable stock
  • ½ bunch of fresh coriander, stalks and leaves chopped separately
  • 250g kippers or smoked mackerel, skin removed, flaked
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 3 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 lemon, sliced into wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Heat the oil and butter in a sauté pan, add the onion and soften over a low-medium heat for 10 minutes until just starting to colour. Add the turmeric and garam masala, stir, then cook for 1 minute more.
  2. Stir in the rice, pour over the stock, then season with a little salt. Bring to the boil, then simmer gently for 10 minutes. Add the coriander stalks and flaked kippers or smoked mackerel, stir gently, then cover and return to a low heat for 5 minutes until cooked/warmed through. Taste and season.
  3. Meanwhile, soft-boil the eggs in a pan of boiling water for 6 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon, then peel and slice into quarters. Gently mix the yogurt and coriander leaves into the rice and top with the eggs. Serve with lemon wedges.

  1. For a Spanish flavour, substitute 1 tsp smoked paprika for the garam masala and a mixture of fried chorizo and king prawns for the smoked fish.
