salt and pepper
2 teaspoons of tomato ketchup

Sue Lawrence in Taste Ye Back: Great Scots and the Food That Made Them has additional ingredients for her kedgeree recipes which includes spring onion sautéed in butter and cherry plum tomatoes.
1. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the onion.
2. Stir in the rice to coat it.
3. Add the stock and bay leaf and bring to the boil.
4. Cook at 180c for 20 minutes or until the rice has absorbed the stock. Poach the haddocks in the milk for 5 minutes whilst the rice is cooking.
5. Break up the fish and add to the cooked rice along with the other ingredients
6. Add the cayenne/curry powder.
Clarissa Dickson Wright has additional ingredients in her book Clarissa's Comfort Food which includes coriander seeds, cardamom seeds, turmeric, dried red chilli, lentils and almonds. It uses flaked cooked salmon rather than smoked haddock.
