Chicken Curry for Babies

July 25, 2008


I think one of the most fun but also scary things about cooking is diving into recipes of different cultures. I have to admit, when I walk into Thai or Indian grocery stores I feel totally lost. There are so many interesting ingredients that I’ve never used before. I can’t tell you how many times in the midst of my test-cooking I’ve opened a little jar of something like red curry paste, eaten a spoonful and immediately had my face turn beet red, sweat starting to drip down my face. But after a bit of experimentation, you can find a whole new world of delicious flavors to expand your and your little one’s palette.
This chicken cur-wee is a perfect introduction for toddlers to try a dish that has a tiny bit of heat, but no overwhelming spice. The flavors are incredibly complex, yet it only takes minutes to prepare. The green curry paste is made of herbs such as lemongrass, galangal and green chiles. When it’s infused into the coconut milk, it takes on a sweet flavor which is perfumed with flavorful herbs. The best part is that you can buy it at most grocery stores, so you don’t need to go to a specialty store to pick it up.
I wasn’t sure how Kenya would react to this dish, but he loved it, I mean he LOVED it!
