Way too spicy to be ‘kid friendly’ taste wise it was ok for me but my youngest was NOT impressed

One of our favourite dinners at the moment. Tend to up the veg a bit by adding a pepper and sometimes some broccoli that has been pre-boiled for a minute or two first. Also made it with red curry paste for a bit of variation. Partner adds a bit of Tabasco to his to spice it up a bit but perfect for me and 8 year old son as it is. Quick to make and yummy.

I made this with mange tout as I didn’t have sugar snap peas. It was good and my daughter liked it but hubby thought it needed a bit more taste. I didn’t want to put more curry paste in it because we do t really do hot in our house. Will cook again but not a favourite
