Method

  1. Place the white and sweet potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer (uncovered) on medium-high heat for 10-12 mins until tender.
  2. Whilst the potatoes are boiling, in a frying pan, heat the oil and add the onion. Stir-fry on medium-low heat for 3-4mins until soft and golden.
  3. Add the garlic, turmeric, cumin, coriander, black pepper and stir-fry continuously for 30secs-1min to lightly cook the spices and set aside.
  4. Next steam the peas in a steamer or in the microwave by placing them in a microwavable dish and adding 2 tablespoons of water. Cover the dish with either a lid (leaving a small vent) or cling film (piercing a few holes), and steam in the microwave on high for 1-1½mins until tender. Once cooked, drain the excess water and set aside.
  5. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain, place in a bowl and add the peas, butter and spoon in the milk and mash the potatoes until smooth.
  6. Add the spiced onion to the mash and combine together for a creamy, tasty pie.
  7. If the consistency of the pie is too heavy for your little one, add some extra milk. Serve to baby warm.
