Here at Hey Mummy we are always looking for new foods to try with the kids and to introduce something other than chicken nuggets and fish fingers! So we asked our friend Sarah, who you may have seen in the Chicken Curry Video, to make a side dish that’s easy and has a bit more flavour than chips and smilie faces!
Check out our video to see her teach Anna how to make ‘Sarah’s Swanky Potatoes’ (sometimes a fun name really helps kids get excited about food)
This recipe is so easy and incredibly quick!
1.5 tbsp sunflower or olive oil
2 Medium Size Potatoes, diced into small squares
Half a Shallot or 1/4 Onion
Sprinkle of fresh or dried curry leaves (about 10-15 leaves)
1 teaspoon mustard seeds (normal or black or both)
A touch of turmeric (Literally touch the spoon)
1/4 tsp slat
Sprinkle of Coriander to garnish
Add oil into a wok/fryingpan to get hot
Add the mustard seeds, they will start to pop
Add the curry leaves
Add the shopped shollot and stir
Add the salt
Then the Turmeric & stir well
Now add the potatoes and stir again
Stir regularly to help the potatoes cook evenly for about 7-10 minutes. (check the potatoes and cook for longer if not cooked thoroughly.
Serve with a garnish of fresh coriander.
This goes beautifully with Sarah’s Chicken Curry Recipe, see here.
