This curry looks delicious and is great for this time of year as it contains super spices turmeric and ginger. Great for little ones from 7 months and adults too. For babies you can blend or mash.
Don't forget that you can make delicious snacks from the pumpkin seeds. These are full of goodness and shouldn't be wasted! We followed the roasting advice from Jamie Oliver. We washed and dried the seeds in the oven and then tossed them in Olive oil, salt and Chilli flakes.
Our snack bags are fab for storing the seeds or for taking out for snacking on the go.
