I've noticed that a few of you have mentioned that you use a Crockpot for cooking curry. I've been toying with the idea for a long time, and now that the weather is cooling down, it sounds very tempting. But I'm a bit intimidated by the thought of experimenting with unknown equipment, and was wondering if you guys had any advice on how to modify conventional recipes for use in a Crockpot. I've seen Crockpot recipe books, but I still don't know how to use the machine for cooking traditional Asian curries.

What do you use your slow cooker for? Do you have tips and ideas for cooking Asian curries in a slow cooker?

Thanks,
Nima

I can imagine that rogan josh (Indian lamb curry) could turn out nicely in a crockpot. On the stovetop, it's a dish that is supposed to sit and simmer for a good long time, so in a crockpot, it could only turn out more tender.

Here's the recipe that I use: http://www.recipesource.com/ethnic/asia/indian/03/rec0324.html

So Franca, using that recipe, would you recommend turning everything out of the skillet and into the crockpot just before adding the water? I understand that the seasonings for curries must be fried to have the authentic flavor.

Needing to be out of the house by 7:15 or 7:30 AM, I guess what I would do is - do all the prep and initial cooking the night before and store in the refrigerator overnight. Then, plop it in the crockpot with water early in the morning, before I leave for work. I do love walking into the house when the crockpot has been going all day! Laughing

Franca, Donna...sorry for the long delay in responding. And thanks for the suggestion. I looked at the recipe in the link, and would love to give it try, but I was wondering about yoghurt in the recipe. Can you put dairy in a crockpot for a long period of time, or will it curdle? I'm assuming the ingredients get fried on the stovetop, before going into the slow cooker.

Thanks for your help!!
