Baby Friendly Healthy Chicken Korma (with a vegan option)
It’s Friday, you are thinking about ordering a take-away and then you remember, hang on a second Aileen you have 5 children! For me this means 4 adult portions now and 1 childs’ portion and evidently equals a spend of around €70! That is way too much for my wallet so I have taken to making my own fake-aways. Take this Healthy Chicken Korma for example! It cost me less than €12 to make using Dunnes Stores Everyday Savers ingredients, it is super quick to make, healthy and it also tastes just as good as the one we get from our local Indian restaurant and feeds all the family from baby to Daddy.
Korma has always been one of my kids favourite dishes, it is a brilliant dish to introduce spice into your babies diet, but mild spices, not hot chilli spice. Ground coriander, cumin, turmeric. It is a messy dish for baby’s feeding themselves, so make sure you have a good long sleeved bib so it doesn’t destroy clothes. I have been there with turmeric, it never, ever comes out! EVER!
This is a brilliant dinner to freeze! I portion into freezer bags, seal then lie flat in the freezer until frozen solid. This makes it super easy to stack up and saves on space especially if you have a small freezer. Sometimes, I make up just the sauce and freeze on its own, and it makes an amazingly quick dinner. Just pour over your favourite veggies, meat/tofu and you have a dinner in less than 10 minutes!
Make it Vegan
As you are all probably aware, my 12 year old son is vegetarian (and my husband is solidarity), however, Dylans favourite food in the ENTIRE world is korma. My korma 🙂 This is a great dish to make into a vegan one and so easy too.
Replace the Greek yogurt with coconut yogurt and replace the chicken with tofu. To cook the tofu, just coat in cornflour before frying on a pan with a little rapeseed oil over a medium heat. Once cooked leaved aside until the sauce is cooked, then add at the very end. This keeps the tofu lovely and crispy and helps it to stay together.
This recipe is sponsored by Dunnes Stores and is part of my healthy family dinners series. All of the ingredients can be found instore and many of them are part of the Everyday Savers range so super good value, especially when feeding a family of 5! Healthy Fakeaways are now my thing!!! 😀
I really can’t wait for you to try this recipe and if you do don’t forget to tag #babyledfeeding. Any comments and feedback would be amazing too!
