Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry

Vegetable curries are filled with healthy nutrition and this slow cooker version is vegan and very simple too. It comes in handy for a busy evening. Add everything to the slow cooker, finish all the errands, come back, stir in coconut milk and in no time a healthy meal is ready. They pair great with flatbreads, rice, brown rice, pulao. Noodles can be added too. I particularly like this curry as it can be paired with wide variety of options. Also, the left overs can be great for the next couple of days, thus helping on busy days.

This curry is very similar to the south Indian kurma. There are quite a few varieties of kurma and this slow-cooked version helps in making the curry without standing near the stove and cooking. Easy and delicious recipes are needed for most busy days to give us energy and satisfaction. There is no denying that this recipe belongs to that category.
