A chicken curry for kids?! Yup, that’s right! The sauce of this kid friendly recipe is sweet and mildly spiced so it is well accepted by little children (I speak from my experience with my own children here). I find that it is also a great way to introduce children to exotic Asian flavors. But best of all, this is a sort of cheat’s recipe — very quick and easy to make. And if you plate it up in a nice bowl and garnish it with loads of almonds and coriander, this curry dish will surely impress adults as well.
