Harpole Day Nursery Kedgeree recipe

Cook the onion in a large casserole dish, in the oil or butter until soft. Add the curry powder, garlic, turmeric and rice. Stir and then add the stock.

Bring to the boil and then simmer until the rice is tender. You may need to add more water.

Meanwhile, hard-boil the eggs in a separate saucepan. Cool, shell and chop.

When the rice is nearly cooked, stir in the frozen vegetables and allow them to heat . Then add mackerel, parsley and lemon or lime juice until the whole dish is piping hot.

Top with the chopped eggs and serve.
