Top 5 Indian Dishes For Kids

October 3, 2018

Let’s face it- sometimes our kids turn into the fussiest eaters on the planet.

Indian cuisine offers up so many different flavours, textures and spices, that finding something for the kids can turn into a real nightmare. They turn their noses up at everything you put in front of them, frowning with arms folded if you make the mistake of plating up something a little too spicy.

But there’s no need to panic. Indian cuisine offers such a diverse palette of flavours that, even if it might take you a while, you can always find something your kids will love. In fact, we’ve done a lot of the hard work for you already, and put together a quick guide on the best Indian food for kids in 2018.

Tandoori Chicken

Everyone loves tandoori chicken, and children are certainly no exception. Rich with a mouth-wateringly smoky flavour and great alongside an array of chutneys and sauces, tandoori chicken isn’t as messy as a curry or rice dish- making it one of the most popular choices for parents trying to feed younger children.

Chicken Korma

Not only is chicken korma the mildest curry you’ll find on the menu, it’s also absolutely delicious. This creamy curry is packed with Indian spice blends, and it’s actually now the most popular curry in the UK, after taking over the tikka masala. Your kids probably won’t really like the idea of a spicy madras or vindaloo, and they’re much likelier to enjoy a good korma.


These little pastry treats always go down an absolute storm with the kids. Traditionally packed with vegetables or some kind of meat, samosas offer children a fantastic bite-size snack to go alongside their main course. If they don’t seem keen on any of the mains- well, you can never have too many samosas!


Some kids just want to sit there munching on a giant poppadom, while everyone else at the table samples all manner of exotic flavours. But you know what? If that’s what they want, then that’s absolutely fine.

You’ll no doubt encourage them to try other dishes, too, but a couple of poppadoms are always guaranteed to go down a treat with the little ones.

Mango Lassi

Okay, so this last one isn’t technically a food or a dish, but children love it so much we felt as though we had to include it on our list. This sweet yoghurt and fruit drink is perfect for quenching the little one’s thirst, while it’s also high in calcium, protein and is a great source of pro-biotics.
