Cooking curries via a slow cooker brings out their essential oils and fragrances creating delicious sauces  for any cut of meat used. All of the ingredients used in the recipes are easy to find.

My favourite recipe is the Butter Chicken, and my sister chose to prepare the Bombay Chicken Curry for family and friends. A delicious mix of onions, garlic, ginger, turmeric, curry powder, and chicken are cooked in a skillet for less than 5 minutes then the tomatoes are added. Once this is ready the stir-fry is transferred to the slow cooker and the coconut milk is added. Over 4 hours the Bombay Chicken Curry will slow cook and then it can be eaten along with rice. 

Everyone commented about how the Bombay Chicken Curry dish tasted like a restaurant meal. The toddlers gobbled it up.... 

I like that the author included a section about Slow Cooker Know-How which includes information on how to choose the right slow cooker for you depending on family/guest size; and how to properly use a slow cooker. 

For complete recipes pick up 150 Best Indian, Thai, Vietnamese & More Slow Cooker Recipes - published in 2012 by Robert Rose Inc. It can be purchased at Indigo, Amazon, and other online retailers.

I received a copy of 150 Best Indian, Thai, Vietnamese & More Slow Cooker Recipes for my review. All opinions and reviews expressed are my own.
