Serves 2

This wonderful spiced rice and egg dish from colonial India makes for a rather different breakfast. Keep an eye out for undyed smoked haddock. Many fishmongers and supermarkets now stock it and the flavour is far superior.

 

Melt the butter in a high-sided saucepan over a medium heat until it is foaming and golden. Add the onion, reduce the heat and sweat gently for about 8 minutes until is has softened.
Add the rice, garam masala and turmeric and cook gently, tossing until completely coated in the onion and butter for 2 minutes. Add the stock and stir through. Cover with a lid and allow to cook gently for 15 minutes until all the liquid has been absorbed.
About 5 minutes before the rice is cooked, stir in sea salt and ground black pepper as necessary and lay the haddock fillets over the top, dotting them with a little extra butter.
Continue cooking with the lid on until the rice is tender, then gently fork the fish through the rice. Serve generous portions on warmed plates topped with parsley, soft-boiled eggs and wedges of lemon.
