We love curry; hot curries packed with chilli and strong flavours. Once Finn started eating with us we thought we should tame the curries down a bit…… after all, a lot our friends and family couldn’t handle the heat so it wasn’t really fair to expect our one year old to enjoy them! This was the first mild curry I had ever made and we all really enjoy it. The sultanas and apples add a lovely sweet taste to make this a truly delicious dish for kids. Its a firm favourite of Finn’s (as you can probably tell from the photos!)
Note: Check the ingredients of the different brands of curry powder. Some have salt pretty high up in the ingredient list and also have added sugar.
