How to make
  1. Boil the rice in water and the fish stock until cooked through. Follow the instructions on the rice you have chosen and substitute some of the water for stock. Once cooked set aside.

  2. Lightly sauté the onions in a pan until clear, add the curry powder, tumeric, cayenne pepper, cardamon and bay leaves. Stir well on a low heat.

  3. Poach the fish: Take a wide pan and fill with milk on a low heat. Add the fish and gently simmer until just cooked. This will vary depending on the size of the fish.

  4. Remove the fish from the milk. In a casserole dish combine the fish and rice and onions so they are all evenly distributed. Bake on a high heat for 20 minutes.

  5. Serve with a wedge of Lemon, half an egg, chopped parsley, coriander and chilli if desired.
