The New Indian Slow Cooker: Recipes for Curries, Dals, Chutneys, Masalas, Biryani, and More
The most up to date book in Ten Speed's top of the line moderate cooker arrangement, including in excess of 60 fix-it-and-overlook it plans for Indian top choices.
The rich and complex kinds of great Indian dishes like Lamb Biryani, Palak Paneer, and chicken in a smooth tomato-margarine sauce can take hours to create through such strategies as broadened braising and low stewing. In The New Indian Slow Cooker, veteran cooking instructor and culinary specialist Neela Paniz reforms the long, slow way to deal with making Indian food by reconsidering its customary plans for the moderate cooker.
She exhibits the best provincial curries, dals made with lentils and beans, vegetable and rice sides, just as key backups like chutneys, flatbreads, raita, and new Indian cheddar. Utilizing this fix-it-and-overlook it approach, you can create total and real Indian dinners that taste like they originated from Mumbai, New Delhi, and Bangalore, or your preferred Indian eatery.
Including both great and imaginative plans, for example, Pork Vindaloo, Kashmiri Potato Curry, Date and Tamarind Chutney, and Curried Chickpeas, these full-flavor, straightforward dishes are ideal for occupied cooks anytime.

Oh my goodness!!!!!!! This is by far the BEST Indian cookbook I have ever purchased!! I am Indian and most recipe books have very elaborate preps and I eventually end up staring at the pictures and heading to an Indian restaurant to satisfy my cravings! This book customizes the most popular Indian recipes (from North to South to Western India) for the slow cooker,thus adding the element of practicality. It lists all the spices etc up ahead, so you can make one trip to your nearest India-P.B
I love indian food, most of the recipes in this book are actually things i haven't tried before, or variations. Like the most common thing i think is the tomato-butter makhni i think it's called here, but i think at my local Indian restaurant it's just butter chicken. But i was expecting more curry type recipes. What is a nice touch is that she covers the spectrum of dishes, like a few different curries, but like i said not a lot, dals, chutneys, a few masala's, biryani and other rice dishes. So overall, i wont go into the recipes as if you read the other reviews, a lot of indian food is made outside the crock pot, so she has all sorts of recipes, and the saucier/vegie ones that can be cooked in a crock pot is presented as a crock pot recipe. So the book is a good way to get started in learning how to make indian food and adapt them to crock pot cooking, but it also shows you how to make other side dishe as well. My goal is to make some really good different curries/masalas in the crock pot so besides this book as a starter, i will look for a indian curry cookbook as well. Book quality is very good though with like a few recipes and then a picture of one of the dishes, few more pages etc... Good starter book on general Indian cuisine. Oh and it says regional, so possibly a mix of northern and southern indian recipes.-Maleko
Have always been a big fan of Indian food. Spent considerable time in this interesting country and fell in love with the variety and robust to delicate flavors of its cuisine. The only problem I had coming home was: a) trying to find some of the spices and b) the time to cook (raising four kids aged 2 to 10 did not afford too much time). Now that the kids are settled, married and out on their own, I find the perfect solution to my Indian food craving problems. Have tried many of the recipes in this great book and it has without fail brought back all the memories of the incredible time in India. No problems with the recipes, in fact most are prep, dump and forget. Thank you Neela Paniz for this wonderful book.-Texasannie
