I've found over the years when cooking for children, particularly babies and toddlers, that they like the taste of spices but don't like the texture of meat or they don't like the taste of coconut milk which is used a lot in child friendly curries. So with that in mind I came up with this and to date no children have refused it!
You can add more spice if you require and of course can use a different meat or Quorn if you are vegetarian.
1 tbsp oil
One pack of turkey mince
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
1 onion, diced
2 medium carrots, peeled and diced
1tsp Garam Masala
1tsp Ground Cumin
1 tsp Ground Corriander
1 tsp Tumeric
2 small cloves of garlic, crushed
1 red apple, peeled, cored and diced
Frozen peas, a good handful.
Heat the oil in a pan and saute the carrots and onion until the onion is just softening.
Add in the Turkey mince and brown.
Add the chopped tomatoes and 1/2 the tin of water.
Add the garlic, spices and apple.
Cook over a medium heat until the sauce has thickened and the carrots and apple are soft, adding more water if needed and stirring often.
Add the peas about 2 minutes from the end of cooking.
Serve with steamed broccoli, rice or Nan bread.
Let me know if you give this a go and if your little ones enjoyed it.
