Bert pushed his bowl away and refused to eat then sat on our knees, one at a time, working his way through all of our food. Every time we tried to take a mouthful he’d point at himself and say ‘Ber’ firmly. We’re going to market it as the Bert diet.
We probably shouldn’t dwell too closely on the total lack of parental control.
2-3 chicken breasts (we had two, but they were big), cut into bite sized pieces
Splash of olive oil
1 dessert spoon tikka curry paste
1 can coconut milk
Peas – pour in until it feels ‘pea-y’ enough
Briefly brown the chicken in the olive oil then add the tikka paste and coconut milk. Bring to a boil then simmer for about 20 minutes, adding the peas in the last 5 minutes. Season to taste.
We had ours with rice and Indian spiced root veg (add 1 teaspoon of nigella seeds and one teaspoon of turmeric to peeled and batonned root veg, toss in olive oil and roast for 30-40 minutes).
