Curry recipe suitable for 12mo but not too bland for DH?

Any links to good low-salt curry recipes would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Can you not just use one of your usual curry recipes, omitting the salt and chillies, then give DH salt and chilli flakes to add at the table?

I just make a normal curry (without salt) & have done since DS was 6mo. If it is too hot, I'll add some soft cheese or yoghurt to DS's portion, although I don't usually bother. Children don't need bland food and DS has got used to & enjoys lots of strong flavours.

What BartletForTeamGB says, we had to tone down the curries for PIL's visiting and they still complained they were too hot as DD was tucking in.

But Yogurt will tone down any curry and a full fat plain natural yogurt is a great food for babies who can tolerate cows milk.

Ha ha, yes, I need the yoghurt more for the PIL than for DS too! They are just amazed he likes curry & spice when salt & pepper are a bit of a luxury in their house!

My little lady has enjoyed this indian spiced lentil dish from 10 months.
Another hit with her is beetroot and yoghurt curry This is also a particular favourite or mine. Neither of the curries have chilli in them but they still have the wonderful spices associated with Indian food. I agree with Bartlet, children don't need bland food!

We add Creme Fraiche to regular curries to tone Down
