Henna, you will not regret buying a slow cooker, they are brilliant.

All your SW curries can be cooked in your slow cooker, I use one for all mine.

And yes - you can used fresh or frozen mince in the cooker.

Please ask anytime if you have any questions concerning you cooker and recipes, but I am sure you will soon get used to it, enjoy your shopping. X

I love my slow cooker.

Last night I did Butternut squash and red lentil curry. Diced butternut squash, 100g red lentils, chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock, tablespoon of curry paste, and chopped onion. Throw it all in. Lovely. I did mine 4 hours on high. Could be all day on low. 1 syn on green. Loads of rice. I really enjoyed it. tonight I'm puttin lamb shanks in their with stock and rosemary, and some moroccan spices, maybe chopped tomates too. You can do anything in there. SOmetimes I bung ina whole chicken, potatoes and veg and go out for the day, I have a full dinner ready when I get in. Apart from anything t saves me from the ttakeaway I would otherwise be tempted to if I didn't walk in from a day out, with a cooked dinner waiting!!

One more question though if i make a chicken curry and chuck in loads of veggies chopped tomatos and spices do i put the chicken breast in at the same time then leave it or should i put it in nearer the end??

When you go to buy one dont think you have to spend a lot of money. I have the one from Argos think it about £8.50 and it is brilliant, washes up easy nothing sticks.

If i put yoghurt in the curry shall i put it in just before serving?? Will it split!! I dont want to ruin it after it smells so good!!

I find with slow cookers that you have to go steady with the stock or liquid. You need hardly any otherwise your sauce can be a little on the thin side!

Enjoy your curry!

Pity you're so far away! I'd come round! I've done loads of curries from the curry feast book in my slow cooker. I have the Tesco one, I find I can do everything on low and give it 4 hours. The only thing is I need to do the onions first or they seem a bit raw! Even tho the meat is meltingly tender! Thai chicken curry is wonderful done in it!
This book is wonderful, and you can easily adapt the recipes, tho the coconut milk is worth the syns for the taste in some!
