10 Amazing Slow-cooker Indian Recipes

If you like flavour packed, spicy food then Indian cuisine has to be your ultimate choice. It consists of tons of ingredients and long procedure but no need to get intimidated, it's completely worth it. Just by using your slow cooker you can now make it without any hassle. Here is a list of how you can do so,

Slow Cooker Butter Chickpeas

Slow Cooker Butter Chickpeas and Tofu! Packed with protein, vegan and gluten free. A healthier take on the favorite Indian dish Butter Chicken but made with chickpeas. This is such a simple dish; the perfect make-ahead healthy weeknight dinner.

Slow cooked Indian beef curry

The soft spuds soaked up a little of the curry sauce making them seriously tasty on their own. Actually that makes me think you could make this with just veges and maybe throw in some chickpeas too to vary up the texture. I’ll let you decide. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Goat Curry

The sauce is full of flavor and the meat, when cooked slow, becomes perfectly tender and juicy. If you’re feeling adventurous, give this a try. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you.

Slow Cooker Pork Vindaloo

And vindaloo is very flexible meat-wise– beef, goat, lamb, and chicken all make lovely substitutions in this recipe. Use what you’ve already got on hand and keep it frugal.

Recipe: Lamb Rogan Josh

Rogan josh is one of the better known Indian classics, and this fiery lamb or mutton dish from the Kashmir region of India is now popular all over the world. My version stays very close to an authentic Hindu-style recipe, but I have tweaked it to make a rich and spicy slow-cooked dish that is perfect for chilly winter days.

Chana Masala in the Slow Cooker

Chana Masala, is so flavorful you’ll forget that it’s vegetarian… and frugal!

Saag Paneer

Packed with vegetables, fiber, and protein, this delicious Indian dish made primarily with spinach is a great vegetarian meal. It also tastes delicious over chicken or beef if you want to a meat friendly option. Have leftovers? Serve on flatbread to make an Indian inspired pizza.

Indian Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Curry

Indian food is all about layering different ingredients, flavors, and spices together in a certain way to create a complex and rich dish. But it’s actually very simple. For this one, you just saute together onions, garlic, and ginger with a homemade spice blend and some tomatoes, then dump it in the slow cooker with butternut squash and red lentils. Let it go all day and you’ll come home to a creamy, spiced, and lightly sweet curry that’s almost like a veggie chili.

Crock pot/Slow cooker Dal Makhani | Slow cooker Indian Recipes

This has also been one of my go to dishes if I have guests coming over for dinner on a week day. It takes the pressure off you for the making of one dish for the main course. I get store bought naan and make a pulao to go with it. Works like magic, and tastes like you spent hours stirring a pot over the stove.

Slow Cooker Butter Chicken

Skip the take-out and try this super easy, lightened-up creamy butter chicken right in the crockpot – it’s less calories and tastes a million times better!
