WEANING: Paneer, Pea and Cauliflower Curry Recipe

 I'm a big fan of giving Isabella a variety of curries, as they're full of flavour and always freeze really well. The garam masala is a fragrant mix of spices, without the addition of chilli making it ideal for babies/children. However if you don't have any you could use a combination of ground coriander, ground cumin, tumeric, ground ginger and cardamon. Just add as little or as much of each spice to suit your child's palette.

What you'll need:
1 Cauliflower, cut into whichever size chunks suits your child
2 Onions, finely chopped
100g Paneer, cut into whichever size chunks suits your child
2 Handfuls of frozen peas
2 Garlic cloves, crushed
2 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
1 Carton of passata
1 tbsp Olive oil
250ml Water

What to do:
1) Heat the olive oil in a large pan and add the paneer. Fry until golden brown, remove from the pan and set aside. 
2) Add the cauliflower and onion to the pan, fry for 10-15 minutes. If you need to add more olive oil or a splash of water to stop anything sticking to the bottom of the pan. 
3) Stir in the garlic and garam masala. Cook for further 2 minutes.
4) Pour in the passata and water, bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes or until the cauliflower is cooked through.
5) Add in the peas and cooked paneer, simmering for a final few minutes.
6) Serve with rice or naan/pitta bread and fresh coriander.
