Mango & Coconut Kid Friendly Curry


Do you feel a little apprehensive about serving curry to a little person? You don’t need to be! This recipe is very child friendly, it has just the right amount of sweetness and curry flavour with zero heat. The sauce is blitzed until smooth (very important) and served with all their favourite veggies (also very important). It can also be served with chicken or fish.


The measurements below make about 6 child portions which you can freeze in batches. Me and my other half eat this too but we up the seasoning and add chilli flakes!
