My first chicken curry by Annabel Karmel
Some parents are surprised to hear that their baby can enjoy a tasty curry from so early on in their weaning journey. Once your little one is around 7–8 months old, they will probably like a mild, aromatic chicken curry (and you will too!).  This recipe is taken from 'Weaning Made Simple' out on 23rd January 2020.

1 tbsp olive oil

½ onion, sliced

½ red pepper, deseeded and cut into 1cm dice

200g butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1cm dice

200g chicken thigh fillet, cut into 1.5cm dice

½ tsp mild korma curry powder

½ tsp grated fresh ginger

175ml low-salt chicken stock or water

3 dried apricots, finely chopped

Rice, to serve (optional)

Heat the oil in a pan. Add the onion, pepper, squash and chicken. Brown over the heat for 2 minutes.

Add the curry powder and ginger and fry for 30 seconds.

Add the stock and apricots. Bring to the boil then cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Blend to a chunky or smooth consistency.

Serve with rice, if liked.
