Family Friendly Curry Recipe – I Made This
April 27, 2012
I Made This is a Fresh Cooking Project feature each month. This month’s I Made This is with another of my lovely readers, Jodie – we made a family friendly curry.
I Made This is a session where the reader chooses the recipe chosen to make. You can tell your friends “I Made This”.
Jodie chose to make a curry as it is something that she has not made before. Like many of us, she grew up eating meat and three vegetables for dinner. Jodie is married and has a 4 year old son and young twin girls. Dinners need to be quick to make, or able to made in stages. This recipe lends itself well to that. It contains no chilli so is suitable for children. The flavors are fresh and creamy.
It went through testing on 3 families (9 children) before writing this. On the first test 4 children ate it happily with one going back for seconds! On the second test my 4 year old ate it and loved it again, and my 1 one year old ate some of it. Jodie’s children didn’t eat it, but it was their first time tasting coconut milk and the flavors of the spices and herbs. The result is 6/9 ate the curry happily.
To make the Curry Paste:
Add the ingredients to a mortar and pestle and pound until a paste is formed
To Make the Curry:

3. Will you make a curry again?
“I would definitely like to make this again and try it with pumpkin. I will would like to make it for my mum and dad too”
Thanks for letting me visit your home Jodie and cook with you. It was nice to chat to you nice to see that other mums wrangle cooking with children on their legs and hips too! Jodie made it look easy with twins climbing over her while stirring the curry, chatting to me and keeping an eye on other children playing.
