NOTES : Kedgeree is a classic East Indian dish of rice, lentils and onions, and it was only in the 18th century that smoked fish and hard-boiled eggs were added in order to anglicise it. Our vegetarian version also includes vegetables and nuts to produce a wonderful contrast of tastes and textures.
