  1. Put the rice, turmeric and 800ml water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil over a high heat. Stir once, cover with a tight-fitting lid and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes without lifting the lid, then remove from the heat and leave to stand for 5 minutes, still covered.
  2. While that’s happening, put the fish in a large saucepan, cover with boiling water and put over a medium heat. Bring to the boil and remove from the heat. Strain 300ml of the poaching liquid into a jug. When the fish is cool enough, break it into flakes and set aside.
  3. Spray a non-stick frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and put over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 10 minutes or until soft. Add the curry powder, ground coriander, sweet potato, carrot, garlic and ginger, pour in the reserved poaching water and simmer for 15 minutes.
  4. When the sweet potato and carrot are soft, take the pan off the heat and blitz until smooth with a stick blender. Return the pan to the heat, add the red peppers and green beans and cook for 5 minutes, then add the flaked fish, lemon juice and most of the chopped coriander. Stir the rice through the fish mixture and heat through, stirring to coat everything in the spicy sauce mix.
  5. In the meantime, cook your eggs any way you fancy them.
  6. Divide the kedgeree between plates or bowls, top with the eggs and scatter over the remaining coriander to serve.
