Featuring a wonderful array of curry dishes to suit every palate.

Slow cookers and curries really are a match made in culinary heaven, because slow cooking spices allows them to slowly release their essential oils and fragrance creating tantalizing and aromatic sauces, while at the same time rendering even the most economical cuts of meat succulent and tender.

These tantalizing recipes use ingredients easily found at a local grocer, without compromising authentic flavor. It's a wonderful internationally-influenced selection of recipes which also includes over 40 recipes for rice, chickpeas, lentils, beans and peas.

Dishes include

Spiced Prawn and Pineapple Curry, Bangkok Sour Pork Curry, Kali Dhal Caribbean Curried Beef, Burmese Golden Rice, Butter Chicken Pork Rendang, Sticky Jasmine Rice, Lemon and Date Pickle Filipino Green Papaya Curry, Saag Dhal, Lamb Biryani Creamy Spinach and Tomato Dhal, Jamaican Fresh Peach Chutney

There are also delicious and creative twists on accompaniments along with slow cooker know-how such as preparing various types of food for the slow cooker. Cooks will delight in the combination of the authentic sumptuous dishes as well as the greatly reduced time spent in the kitchen.

For most of these dishes, since they are started in a pot on the stove. It is easier to turn down the heat and slow cook in the pot itself. However, until you master the art, need to keep an eye so that it doesn't run dry and burn; unlike a slow cooker the stove does not turn itself off.
But with a little experience can master the art of slow cooking in one pot on the stove.

The two-pot recipes in this book, may however, produce food with a little more texture and tough meat cooked in the slow cooker will be more softer.

I read through all the recipes and ended up not trying any of them. They all called for curry powders or pastes that are already prepared/packaged. I could get the same recipes off the packages or the manufacturer's websites. I wanted to learn how to mix all the spices myself.

Well this was disappointing. I had thought these recipes would enable me to make curry sauces from scratch. What is the point of a madras curry recipe that calls for madras curry powder plus a few other ingredients? That's like defining a word using the word itself.
