When cooking Indian food for kids it's a good idea to prepare something a little less spicy or make a cooling Indian drink like lassi.
I discovered this recipe when my eldest son was a colicky baby and I had little time to cook. It has been a family favourite ever since. It's low fat, healthy, child friendly, quick to make and it freezes well. If you like a hotter curry, add some peri peri sauce or chilli powder.
This is a simple but delicious recipe for kulfi (Indian ice cream) that I got from my sister-in-law. I have made this several times, and it always gets rave reviews - even the kids love it! For extra flavour, you could add a few drops of rose water or some ground pistachios.
I came up with this recipe when all I had in the freezer was a packet of frozen spinach and a packet of chicken mince. Incredibly simple, but now a favorite in our house.
This is a lovely custardy rice pudding in the Indian tradition. You can make it all vegan by using soy milk as the other milk.
Be careful while cooking this wonderful Indian sweet. Make small balls with the dough and press between hands and drop in the milk to boil then see if it is cooked in the middle so u can get great taste.
A family favourite; the product of much experimentation. You'll be amazed how delicious this low fat, nutritious curry is!
This is a one pot chicken dinner, flavourful and colourful. It includes coconut milk, zucchini and a fragrant mix of spices.
This mellow curry of minced beef has just a hint of chilli, so it's ideal for children who like to be a little adventurous with their food. Serve with steamed basmati rice and warm naan bread.
