K is for Kegeree
We are currently watching the latest round of Masterchef on BBC1. We haven't watched every episode but catch it from time to time. One thing which always amazes me about the people who take part is the way they cook dishes they have never tried or tastedI I mean this is a COMPETITION so if it was me I would make sure the dishes I cooked were tried and tested beyond belief!
A few weeks ago one of the challenges was to cook kegeree. I decided to give it a go as it is something I have never cooked before. I do my own stir fry but with long grained rice. When I saw some proper risotto rice at a reduced price I had to buy some and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use some up. This then are the ingrediants I used:-
500g risotto( arborio)
1 pt stock
2 chopped onions
Spices to taste (cumin, chilli, etc)
4 soft boiled eggs
Cooked flaked mackeral or fish of choice ( I quite fancy trying with monkfish)
Heat olive oil, add onions and cook till golden brown.
Add rice and stir in half the stock.
Cook until absorbed.
Stir in remainder with cooked veg and stir until rice has absorbed liquid and veg is heated thoroughly.
Add fish and cut egg.
Serve straight away!
