This one pan recipe was simple to make, and the kids loved it too.  A perfect way to introduce new flavours like curry to the whole family.   You could also include veggies like peas or carrots depending on what your family loves.

    I adore the photo of your son working in the kitchen and at such a young age too. None of mine were ever in the slightest bit interested – only that food got onto the table in a timely manner 🙂 Surprisingly enough 2 of my sons are now very good cooks – no idea where they got that from though 🙂
