Do you think it would be possible to ask for a Korma with no salt? For the toddler? Or would they think we were nuts? Want to go out to the local Indian (which we love) for DH's birthday...

Depends if it is cooked fresh or bought in in a sauce already prepared.

One saltier than normal meal won't harm a toddler.

It won't harm them as a one off.

Think you are being a bit precious!

They'll think you're nuts. It is only one meal, just enjoy!

Theyll think you are daft. Just shove a dollop of everything you order onto his plate and let him explore. He will end up eating mainly naan ill bet.

I don't think they will be able took so it as the salt is added at the beginning of cooking not the end.

maybe chicken tikka, nan would be better?

littleducks Sun 09-Mar-14 19:14:38

sorry chicken tikka, naan and salad

It will have been pre-prepared, so not possible.

My DC have all survived incredibly salty roast dinners at MILs. Although they do all become rather thirsty!

A toddler's kidneys will be able to manage a bit of a saltier dinner than usual - don't worry and let them enjoy it!

I always give my dd a really healthy breakfast and lunch on a day that we are going out for dinner, I like to think it counters out any salt she will have with dinner!
Sounds a tad pfb, I don't think there can be that much salt?

I'm envy of anyone who has a toddler who is able to be taken into a restaurant. grin

My 3 year old has been for several curries and Chinese meals I tend to plonk a bit of everything on his plate as it is only one meal and I know he eats well at other meals. Curry wise he ends up mainly eating the poppadoms with the chopped up onion cucumber and tomato!

I agree with everyone else, as a one off it's fine.

DD (14 mo) had a masala dosa at our local indian restaurant and loved it.
