Kedgeree is a Victorian Anglo-India dish that is thought to have originated with the British colonial servants returning to Britain after working in India. It was served as a breakfast dish and still is in upmarket hotels and gentlemen’s clubs but is now more popularly served as a brunch dish. The traditional dish consisted of curry flavoured rice with flaked ( usually ) smoked haddock, sultanas, fresh parsley, and hard-boiled eggs. Kedgeree is thought to have evolved from Indian Khichari dishes which are made with spiced rice and legumes.
