This month our tour around the world takes us to India.
My husband and I love Indian food and do make it for the children sometimes too, although we tend to keep theirs a little less spicy.
This is a very simple dish that we have adapted through the years to fit our tastes.
- 1 tbsp sunflower oil
- 2 tsp mild curry paste
- 3 turkey breasts, chopped into pieces
- 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
- 6 tablespoons split red lentils ( rinsed )
- 200ml chicken stock
- 400ml can coconut milk
- a couple of handfuls of frozen peas
- two handfuls of washed spinach (optional )
- Fry the turkey in the hot oil, until browned.
- Add the curry paste, and keep cooking for 2 minutes.
- Add the sweet potatoes and lentils and stir.
- Pour in the stock and coconut milk.
- Bring to the boil and then simmer for 25 minutes or until the sweet potato is soft.
- Add the peas and spinach 5 minutes before serving.

I love sweet potatoes! Let mw know how you get on!
that looks yummy. I’m saving our indian food attempts until I can get my dad over (he’s indian – so I figured I’d get a pro to help)
That sounds exciting!

One of most favorite road side foods when we visit India is sweet potatoes diced up with chat masalam salt and lemon juice sprinkled on it. Need to start adding coconut milk to come of my things, sound yummy and southern indian inspired
OOOh what a super idea to introduce young kids to such food x
OOOh what a super idea to introduce such foods to kids as a young age
I love the photo of him peeling. It’s great to get them involved.
Thanks, he loves food!
this looks lovely…I like to throw a handful of peas in a curry too. I’ll give it a go with the coconut milk, bet my 3 would love it!
I think some baby corn would be good too!

Argh! You remind me that I *keep meaning to* start a weekly cooking session with Red Ted. Your curry looks great! Dare I try it with my fussy eater?
Thank you for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!

That does look good. I think I shall give that a go – we are always looking for new meals for the kiddies to try! Thanks for sharing in Family Frolics.
This sounds so delicious!! I wish my husband would eat curry. Any time he tries it and doesn’t know it has curry in it he likes it but as soon as he finds out there is curry in something he won’t eat it anymore. It drives me crazy!!
Anyway, I would love to try it but I know it won’t be eaten by him. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!
