Recipes, The Little Cooker

Chicken Curry

I have been adding the odd recipe to my Instagram stories for the little’s, but they have been so popular that I am making more effort to put some on the blog. After all, Evie’s corner is a place for food for children. I know a lot of parents struggle with what to cook, so I want to be here to help.

Children's Chicken Curry | The Mother Cooker

One recipe that was requested, was a chicken curry. The base sauce that I have created here means that you can add any vegetable, meat or fish that you like. A gentle spice, lapped up by Evie and ready in under half an hour. I added small cubes of sweet potato, but you could also add peppers, peas, green beans; anything your little likes.

Serves 1, based on a toddler sized portion.
