As a parent, I appreciate how quick and easy this Tomato Cashew curry is to make, and know you will too.
Tomato with cashew is a great combination, both nutritious and tasty. You might have your doubts about how good it is for your baby. (Worry not, neither tomato nor cashew are among the top allergic foods for babies. Although cashew is not a top allergen, it can still cause allergies (Please read the “Important” section below). I would advice you to consult with your pediatrician before serving it to your baby).
While tomato is a great source of vitamin C and anti-oxidants , cashew is a source omega fats for nervous system and brain development. Both tomato and cashews promote the absorption of iron which is crucial for growth. Also tomato has high water content therefore if the baby is struggling with constipation the extra fluids from tomato can help ease it.
As the recipe is quite simple and the ingredients easily available, I hope it puts an end to your worry about serving the baby food which is nutritional yet delicious.
Serve this curry with a soft roti/chapati or cooked plain white rice.
I know your baby will love it as much as mine did.
*** Cashew is known to cause anaphylaxis in up to 3 percent of children, so please try in trace amounts first before giving it in the form of this curry. *** Also please check the Please note section below.
