Review of Easy Indian SuperMeals

I recently received a copy of Easy Indian SuperMeals by Zainab Jagot Ahmed. I was really looking forward to receiving this as I am currently weaning bump and wanted new ideas.  As I mentioned in my weaning post I've stuck to the convenience  of jars of baby food and rusks to wean the girls, I really wanted to try different stuff with bump, and I did buy a blender which I have hardly used except for a few puréed veg.

I was pleasantly surprised when the book arrived as I hadn't been expecting much just a book of purée recipes but it is so much more than that. 


The book is for stage 2 weaning (7 months plus)  threw to 5+. There is lots of detail about super foods and super spices plus a handy table of super spices which are suitable for babies. It Also contains  lots of information on fruit and vegetable super foods. A getting starting guide is included as well as a list of foods to avoid.

The recipes are separated into different sections starting with veggie SuperMeals then  finger food SuperMeals, sweet SuperMeals, meat SuperMeals, family SuperMeals and quick kids SuperMeals.  At the top of each page you can clearly see the stage and age they are suitable for.

I love the fact that there is family recipes and I am looking forward to making some of them especially Lamb Rogan Josh as that is my absolute favourite and I've never made it from scratch before.

Bump isn't quite 7 months yet so I can't try out any receipes with him straight away but I will be. There's a yummy looking festive roasted vegetable mash great for christmas. Yummy spiced potato pie sounds tasty and there's even a veggie korma. 

There's just so many ideas and receipes that I would never of thought of trying.  It really does make you see weaning in a new and exciting way.  I would definately recommend this book to anyone with children, would be a great christmas gift too.

If you would like to know anymore about this book head on over to Zainabs website.

It is also available to buy from Amazon

Happy cooking!


  1. So many lovely Indian meals to cook & they do seem a lot easier than a lot of recipes you can find for Indian food

  2. Very interesting. Usually buy a "heat-up" curry every now and agin - could start from scratch though!

  3. I love Indian food - great idea!

Speech Delay

So bump is now 4 and he is having problems with his speech I'm at the point now where I'm thinking did I do something wrong? will he ever talk? and I just don't know the answers which is frustrating me so I can only imagine how frustrating it is for him.

His speech started off fine the usual mama, dad, dog etc then it just seemed to stop and no more progress was made and I was too worried at first because my eldest daughter who's almost 20 now didn't really say all that much until she started nursery.

By the time it came to his 2 year review I was slightly concerned and spoke with the health visitor about it and was referred to speech therapy, we waited a while for that and they only saw him once where the speech therapist sat and played with him and gave me things to do at home with him.

We did attempt for him to start nursery last April but it didn't go too well and he didn't go anymore, he is quite a handful and they wouldn't let him stay the whole s…

potty training a 4 year old

So as I said in my previous post about speech delay bump is now 4 and still not potty trained, I started off potty training at 2 and its just been a struggle ever since, I feel like I've hit a brick wall and I just don't know what to do anymore.

he wont sit on the potty or the toilet, have tried everything to encourage him, books, dvds haven't tried a reward chart because he would have no interest in that.  Took his nappy away but he will just wet or pooh himself and not care.

He wears a nappy to nursery and he is due to start reception in September, what am I going to do send him to school in a nappy? I cant do that, I'm hoping and praying he's just going to decide to do it on his own but he is quite happy still wearing a nappy with no prompt to change him if he's done a pooh.

I'm at a loss and feel like a total failure, I've potty trained his sisters perfectly fine so why cant I do it?

please feel free to leave me a comment, email or tweet me i'd …
