Wow Super Easy Indian Chicken Curry
I just love slow cooker recipes they make life so easy. This only takes about four minutes to prep. Interestingly the yogurt is put in at the beginning. I understand that yogurt and milk products can split, so if they do just pop them into the recipe within the last 30 minutes to one hour. Very easy to do for busy moms and dads and anyone who wants a fast tasty meal. Note if you are counting the calories just make sure you use a fat (and sugar) free yogurt.
If you like this recipe Anupy Singla has a book out with more tasty recipes. You can see it below the video.
The Indian Slow Cooker: 50 Tasty and Healthy Easy to Cook Recipes
Anupy Singla Quick, Easy and Tasty Recipes
Anupy Singla has put together a fantastic set of easy to cook and prep Indian recipes that use easy to find ingredients most of which you will probably already have if you have spices and like Indian cooking. Looking at the Chicken Vindaloo ingredients (featured below) I was surprised to find that even though I haven't shopped for a while, I actually have all the ingredients already!
I love Indian food because it is rich and creamy with spices and sauces and am always looking for different recipes. However I am not a great fan of complicated and time consuming meals or difficult to find ingredients. I feel that these recipes take that into consideration.
A little More About the Book
The book is well written with a conversational tone that makes you feel at ease and comfortable. The recipes are meant to fit in with a busy life. The author herself used the slow cooker Indian recipes when she was getting up in the early hours for work. You need only invest in 7 to 8 spices for all the recipes.
There are many "just" vegetable recipes so it is well suited to vegetarians. The book even considers those with food allergies and many of the recipes omits those ingredients like eggs or peanuts.
The downside is that she does things like grinding her own spices which kind of defeats the object of using a slow cooker, but hey that is easy to get over. If you don't want to do that then just buy the ones in store. Note though that you are only meant to use them for a short time before they loose potency.
Although 8 spices are used there are other things like mustard seeds that are needed in most of the recipes so there is more to get then the stated spices.

The Toughest Recipe in the Book - Chicken Vindaloo
This is the toughest recipe in Anupy Singla's book and this video shows just how easy it is to cook. Nowonder they were in their fourth printing in a couple of months.
I love this book, as most Indian food is quite high in oils and Anupy Singla doesn't do that as she believes in eating healthy. For the full recipe go to
The Slow Cooker
I love India food and this book is great value for money. Easy to use, easy to cook recipes that are healthy and tasty. And best of all they are fast to prepare and don't use too many fussy ingredients.
I just love that you can bung it all into the slow cooker, set it and then forget about it until it is ready, great if you are out and about or will be in late. Most of the recipes are vegetarian as much of Indian food is and it is all cooked in a healthy way.
