1 chicken breast fillet (skinless) – cut into 1cm cubes
½ tsp ground turmeric
1 tomato – washed, grated
½ tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp ground cumin
150ml (5fl oz) unsweetened coconut milk
1 tbsp unsweetened desiccated coconut
Squeeze of ½ a lemon – ensuring no seeds fall in
¼ tsp ground garam masala
60g (21⁄2oz) broccoli florets – washed, chopped (no stems)
Heat the oil in a pot, add the onion and stir-fry on medium-low heat for 3-4mins until soft and golden.
Add the chicken, turmeric and stir-fry until the chicken is sealed (opaque).
Add the tomato, garlic, cumin and continue to stir-fry for a further 2-3mins.
Add the coconut milk, desiccated coconut, lemon juice, garam masala and simmer on low heat for a further 10mins, stirring occasionally until the chicken is tender. If at any point the curry looks dry, add a little extra water and continue to simmer.
Whilst the chicken is simmering, steam the broccoli in a steamer or in the microwave by placing it in a microwavable dish and adding 2 tablespoons of water. Cover the dish with either a lid (leaving a small vent) or cling film (piercing a few holes), and steam on high for 11⁄2-2mins until tender.
Once cooked, drain the excess water and add to the curry at the end.
Chop to the appropriate lump size for your baby. (You can omit this step if you’re just cooking it for you!)
