This activity is great for extending your child's knowledge and understanding of the world around them, as they learn about different types of food and where they come from. It's also a good way of developing their fine motor skills as they prepare ingredients and handle utensils. And it teaches them an important life skill - how to prepare tasty, nutritious meals (and the occasional yummy treat!).
How to extend the fun
Explain that this recipe uses a spice called 'paprika' which gives the dish a tangy flavour. Paprika is a powdery substance which is made from grinding dried capsicum (chilli pepper). It is used to add colour and flavour to a recipe. Tell your child that when adding a spice to a dish, a tiny sprinkle goes a long way!
