Looking for an easy curry recipe the kids will love?
Well, as it’s National Curry Week, it only seems fitting to help you out!
My daughter loves a mild curry. According to my son’s nursery, he likes one too. Typically however, it goes under the ‘things he’ll eat at nursery, but not at home’ category’
Still, we continue to offer it at family mealtimes!
That said, curry is one of those meals that we don’t typically go out to eat though.
As a couple, we will go out for a curry. Pre-kids, we’d also love a cuzza after the pubs shut.
With the kids however, we tend to stick to family friendly pubs and restaurants.
So, curry is a meal that we eat at home as a family.
Why is a curry a family favourite?
The curry is a staple for family mealtimes.
Perhaps it’s the combination of creamy sauces, tasty spices, and carb overload. Whatever it is, us Brits love a curry. Or rather, we love whatever we think is a curry.
Authentic curries in India are apparently nothing like the ones we eat here.
My husband has travelled to India quite a bit and he’s always commented how ‘real’ curries are very different to what we eat here. His verdict is that British curries are a little bit sweeter and thicker. He’s also noted that there are also areas of the country where curries are vegetarian, and you won’t find any meat in them.
Whatever the differences though, the curries we eat here are still pretty delicious.
So, do you fancy a quick and easy curry recipe that the whole family will love? ⠀

The great thing about this curry recipe is that it’s a social meal where you can share papadams and naan breads.
It’s jammed full of goodness, will fill up hungry tummies, and depending on whether you make your own paste or shop buy, it’s really quick to make. The sweet potato also adds extra sweetness that kids love, without realising they are eating vegetables.

- Olive oil
- Naan bread and/or papadams
How to make:
