Hi All

Wondering if anyone can help. I was given a slow cooker for christmas (after wanting one for ageeees lol)

Was looking at two recipes in this months mag, Chilli Cone Carne and Chicken Tikka Massala and wondering if anybody know if either would be slow cooker suitable?

With minced beef, would you need to brown the beef before hand or would it be okay to chuck in raw? I'm also concerned about the tikka because it calls for fromaige frais and natural yogert and I don't know if these would go funny cooking for hours on end?

Any advice appricated

You can do either - for leaner meat brown first and drain excess oil.
Chilli and curry are 2 recipes that are often recommeded for a slow cooker, i have made both and the curry came out best - intense flavours! I used quorn mince for the chilli and it was very watery.
Always halve the amount of liquid the normal recipe advises as a slowcooker generates it's own juice!

Hope this helps
