Tender haddock, golden soft boiled eggs with a touch of spice with a rice base, this is a cherished recipe that has it’s origins from the British Raj where it started as khichdi — a dish from the Ayurvedic khichari diet that included spices, fried onions, ginger, and lentils. Those returning from their time in the subcontinent brought the dish to Britain, where it quickly became a national staple, with the lentils usually left out of the preparation and more recently included smoked fish.

Remember to discard the bay leaves! Use a soft spatula to stir when the fish has been added to prevent breaking the fish. Serve with crusty bread for the hungry eater.
