Heat oil over a medium/ high heat in a saucepan. Reduce to a medium / low heat and add the onion. Fry for one min before adding the celery. Fry for a further minute before adding the curry powder. Fry for another minute and then add the capsicum pepper. Fry until softened (for around another minute.)
Add 1/2 cup of stock and stir.
Add the can of tomatoes and the remaining stock and chopped date.
Simmer, over a low heat, for approx. 20 mins.
While the sauce is cooking, hard boil the eggs. Peel and cut in half.
Once the sauce is cooked, add the eggs and serve.
ONIONS - I have used finely sliced onions in this recipe as my family likes it this way but I am aware that this could be off-putting for some children. You can finely dice the onion or even puree them so that there are no "stringy bits" of onion lurking in the curry.
CELERY - I finely chopped the celery but you can also puree it to give a smoother curry sauce.
CURRY POWDER - Curry powders are not created equally. Use a mild curry powder and if serving this to under ones or young toddlers then make sure to look at the ingredient list of the curry powder you buy. A lot of curry powders have a high salt content so look for one with no added salt/low sodium levels.
TOMATOES - The chopped tomatoes do break down as the sauce cooks but if you want a really smooth sauce you could puree the tomatoes or replace with passata.
STOCK- Use homemade stock or low sodium stock if cooking for a baby / young child.
EGGS - Be careful not to over boil your eggs. Hard boil, but only just. You want your yolks to creamy and not overly dry.
TOO SPICY? - If you use a mild curry powder then this recipe should be very mild and easy on the palate for novice curry eaters. If your children do find it a little spicy then you might need to add something to reduce the heat. Try stirring in some cream, coconut cream or serve with some yoghurt for a more mild flavour.
