Kedgeree History
Kedgeree may be considered a traditional British breakfast dish but its roots are well bedded in Indian cooking having started its life as khichari, a humble dish of rice and lentils. Thanks to the British Raj and the colonization of the sub-continent the dish was taken, adapted and turned into something more familiar to those serving in India, and it returned to these shores with them.
Also Known As: khichari
