This Indian chili recipe uses traditional Indian spices and ingredients for a unique and twist on a traditional slow cooker classic.
I’ve been thinking about this for a long time. I love chili like most Americans. I also love Indian food so I thought, why not mesh the two together? When I saw ground chicken on sale on the Milk & Eggs website I knew it was time to give this recipe a go. If you don’t like Indian spices then this recipe is not for you.
This is however a recipe that you can tweak to your liking. For example, I really like bell pepper so I used two. I also used ground chicken but you can use your preferred meat. I’ve made this a couple of times now. The first time I fully intended to use 28 ounces of diced tomatoes but when I went for it in my pantry I only had 15 ounces. But I found a can of tomato sauce so I used that combo instead. It came out fantastic. The second time I made this I used the 28 ounces of diced tomatoes. It came out very well but I preferred the diced tomato/tomato sauce combo so I’m leaving the instructions like that.Print
