Cookisto / Kedgeree & Riata

Kedgeree originated from the Indian rice-and-bean or rice-and-lentil dish Khichri. Made with rice, smoked fish, eggs and spices, it became popular in Britain in Victorian times as a breakfast dish. It was almost certainly on the early morning menu for Queen Victoria as her love of all things from the sub-continent is well documented.

Chilled yoghurt with cucumber and garlic is cooling and astringent, so Raita is a great foil for the smoky, spicy, slightly sweet rice dish.

£8.50pp with Aston Parish Bakery bread.
