Preparation Time

20 minutes




  • 150g onions, chopped

  • 1tsp garlic puree

  • 1tsp ground ginger

  • 1tsp ground coriander

  • 1tsp paprika

  • 1/4tsp ground black pepper

  • 4tbsp chopped fresh coriander

  • 50g chopped chicken breast

  • 200g canned lentils

  • 100g squash, peeled, chopped into 5 cm (2 inch) pieces and boiled

  • 300g sweet potatoes, peeled, chopped into pieces and boiled

Sweet potatoes are a perfect and healthy addition to curries; your child will definitely enjoy their natural sweetness.

  1. In a non-stick large casserole, place all the ingredients together over medium heat, except the cooked sweet potatoes and squash. Pour 100 ml over the ingredients. Cover with a lid and leave to simmer gently for 30 min, until the chicken and the lentils are fully cooked.

  2. Stir occasionally to make sure the ingredients don’t stick to the pan. You may need to add extra water towards the end of the cooking time, to prevent the curry from becoming too dry.

  3. Once cooked, transfer the preparation along with the cooked sweet potatoes and squash in a food processor and process until you get the right consistency, add water if necessary.
