Spice up your little one's dinners with Siobhan Berry's easy to make Curry. Siobhan started making this for her daughter Ashleigh at about 6 months of age and thinks it is the reason she now likes all things spicy.

  2. Add the sweet potato, carrot, cauliflower, red lentils and chicken and stir to coat in the spices.
  3. Pour in the coconut milk, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the lentils are soft and the chicken is cooked through.
