MONDAY 27TH APRIL – EASY KIDS CURRY WITH RAITA

HOMEMADE KIDS CURRY WITH RAITA (INDIAN STYLE YOGURT)

I’ve made this super easy for the kids to make, but there’s plenty of scope for the adults to jazz it up even more. This is a very ‘loose’ curry best served in a bowl, if you’d like it thicker see notes on using cornflour.

You can make a vegetable curry, fish curry or meat curry – we’ll make these all in the same way so choose what your ‘main ingredient’ will be, either:

  • Fish Curry – 400g fish fillets (or mixed seafood, prawns, etc.)
  • Meat Curry – 400g diced chicken or lamb or pork belly strips
  • Vegetable Curry – 1 whole cauliflower, broken into florets

SERVES 4 

Serving Suggestion:

  • Rice! See note below

What you need:

  • 1 frying pan + spoon
  • 1 saucepan for rice + lid
  • 1 cereal bowl + spoon

Ingredients – Curry:

  • Splash olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 tin coconut milk
  • 3 tbsp mild curry powder (or 1 tbsp of; ground cumin, ground coriander, garam masala and a pinch of turmeric)
  • Pinch sugar or 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tin chickpeas
  • OPTIONAL – 1 inch fresh ginger, chopped

NOTE:

Thicken sauce: mix together 1 tbsp cornflour with 3 tbsp cold water, pour it in, warm it up and it will thicken.
