Why is this Iowa Boy making curry? Fair question. I haven’t traveled to the far reaches of the world or experienced all the diverse types of curry that exist. What I do know is that I love the spices and flavors that come together to form various curry dishes I’ve both had and made. I’ll admit: nothing about my curry is conventional, especially with the addition of the slow cooker. That being said, these are ingredients that satisfy my craving for that delicious curry.
Each and every time you have a curry dish, it can be so vastly different. The main ingredients can be vegetable-based or any selection of meat However, the range of spices can be daunting. To make it easy, I use a curry paste as a start which is easily found in most grocery stores. Side note (and totally off subject): isn’t it great how so many ingredients are easy to find anymore?! After a little sauteing – which is the only bit of cooking you’ll have to do with this dish, I promise – everything is placed in the slow cooker to cook for hours and fill your home with a welcoming and warming smell. To make it a meal, I serve this over rice and am as happy as can be. A big bowl of this curry and I’m good to go!
