ANOTHER DAY,ANOTHER MEAL … CAULIFLOWER AND SWEET POTATO CURRY


ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER MEAL …

CAULIFLOWER AND SWEET POTATO CURRY:

We love curry in my house and luckily for us so does Chloe. Now that she is one year old I can make a kids version of the curry that we eat, which makes the cooking so much easier.

Hope that your baby will like it as well.


Ingredients:

– 100g chicken

– 150g cauliflower

– 1/2 onion

– 200ml tomatoes

– 200ml of coconut milk

– 2tsp of mild curry powder

– 2 sweet potatoes

– 1 tbsp of basil

– 1 tsp ginger (cut in to very small cubes)

Cooking method :

Peal and slice sweet potato; steam until soft*

Fry your onion on a little bit of olive oil for 3 minutes. Add chicken and curry powder, fry for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and coconut milk and simmer for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile wash your cauliflower and blend it in the food processor (if your baby/child is older you can divide it in to small florets instead).

Add cauliflower in to the curry and simmer for another 10minutes. At the end add basil.

Cut sweet potatoes in small cubes and combine with the curry.

Your dinner is ready to serve!

* I like to cook potatoes separately by steaming to preserve more nutritions and because it’s so much easier to cut them in small cubes once they are cooked.

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER MEAL … VEGETABLES AND LENTIL CURRY WITH CHICKEN

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER MEAL …

VEGETABLES AND LENTIL CURRY WITH CHICKEN  I have made up this one, but surprisingly it has turn up to be very tasty😊

Ingredients :

– 1/2 red pepper

– 30g of red lentils

– 50g of peas

– 50g of aubergine

– 1 can of chopped tomatoes

– 1 small chicken breast

– 1 onion

– 1 garlic cove

– 2 tsp of mild curry spices

– 100ml of coconut cream

If your baby started eating more solid foods like Chloe then chop everything in to a very small cubes; If your baby still eats purees then cut everything in to chunks as it will be blended anyway.

Cooking method :

Fry onion and garlic until golden, then add curry spaces and lentils, and a minute later chopped tomatoes. Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

In a meanwhile I roast my aubergine and chicken on the frying pan. You don’t have to do it but I find that this is the only way to cut chicken in to small cubes (I can’t do it with a raw one) and that aubergine keeps its consistency better when cut in to small cubes.

Add all of the other ingredients except peas and simmer for another 10 minutes. Add peas 2 minutes before the finish time. Hope that your baby will enjoy it
