I’m all for a one pot/pan meal, its a time saver and it allows me to press on with other things when i’m super busy. This one pot curry is veggie friendly and ticks the healthy box, which is good for me and baby!
Now here is the killer, I made my own curry paste on the spot. I couldn’t do with any shop bought stuff as I generally don’t like a lot of spice and my little boy would need something mild, so this is how i made it; make sure to make it along with the prep and add it to this recipe!
