Overview

The Indian Slow Cooker: 50 Healthy, Easy, Authentic Recipes by Singla

This unique guide to preparing Indian food using classic slow-cooker techniques features more than 50 recipes, beautifully illustrated with full-color photography throughout. These great recipes take advantage of the slow cooker's ability to keep food moist through its long cooking cycle, letting readers create dishes with far less oil and saturated fat than in traditional recipes. Anupy Singla shows the busy, harried family that cooking healthy is simple and that cooking Indian is just a matter of understanding a few key spices. Her "Indian Spices 101" chapter introduces readers to the mainstay spices of an Indian kitchen, as well as how to store, prepare, and combine them in different ways. Among her 50 recipes are all the classics — specialties like dal, palak paneer, and gobi aloo — and also dishes like butter chicken, keema, and much more. The result is a terrific introduction to making healthful, flavorful Indian food using the simplicity and convenience of the slow cooker.

the recipes are hit n miss.

I made the rajma for my Indian friends and threw it out. As the spices are all dumped in together at the beginning and cook for hours the lively brightness of the garlic or onion and the spices get overcooked. Don't despair. I tried the recipe I threw out again where I cooked the spices and onion and/or garlic separately adding it all at the end of the dish. The result was perfect. I think in her zeal to produce a cookbook that makes Indian food easy she forgot a few simple steps make the dish. Giving two stars because I use the book, just add the spices etc. at the end.

Poor recipes.  Curry chickpeas and rice pudding were a bust.  Discarding book before wasting any more food.
