Well Ratty cat was so sure when I got the slow cooker out we were having pork or beef balls again. Imagine her disgust when I told her no Ratty not Ratty food but defo Caytie food. Will do again and again and again. Sorry Ratty

Loved how easy this recipe was, and the flavours were lovely and authentic (to my palate, anyway!) I left out the chilli and went a bit lighter on some of the spices so Mr 6 would eat it, served with rice and naan. Next time will stick to the recipe – I’m sure it will be a knockout meal!

400ml 🙂

This was my first slow cooker curry that I made. It turned out amazing! Even my hubby was impressed since he is a Punjabi. I cut down ingredients since less people, so mine wasn’t as brown in as the picture but still was amazing

Absolutely delicious 🙂 I served with rice. Next time I’ll leave out the chilli flakes as it was a bit spicy but that’s not a complaint! Best flavour!!

OMG This recipe was so nice. If you love Indian then this one is for you. We served this with rice and home made naan. The entire family loved this curry. The recipe was easy to make and adjustable if you like it mild or hot. Will be cooking this again. Can’t wait for tomorrow as leftover curry is always better the next day. (Would have given more than 5 stars if I could.)
