This easy vegetarian curry cooks in just a couple hours time in your slow cooker. Make this vegan recipe or prep it for a freezer meal.
I’ve made several different variations of this recipe of the years but this is the one I use the most. The ingredients are simple and I usually have them all on hand in the house.
I know the best thing about slow cooker meals is the set-it-and-forget-it factor until you’re ready to serve. Hence why I try to stay away from two-part slow cooker recipes. So for this one, if you don’t have time to add the peas and tomatoes during the last 30 minutes of cook time then just add them at the beginning with the rest of the ingredients.
For the potatoes, I used white sweet potatoes. You can use your preferred potato in this recipe. Waxy potatoes like red or yellow potatoes work well in the slow cooker because they hold their shape well. I use 1/2 cup of coconut mil but if you want a more saucy curry, then you can use a full cup. If you find that your curry comes out dry or overcooked, try adding in more coconut milk. If you run out of coconut milk, don’t fret add almond milk or even water. If you’re vegan or you don’t have ghee, omit it.Print

You’ll know this is done when the potatoes are soft.
If you want to add meat, you can. Occasionally when I make this recipe, I’ll throw in some meat; usually ground chicken or ground turkey. If you use ground meat, I suggest you brown the meat in the skillet prior to adding it to the slow cooker. The cook time will remain the same. You can add up to 1 pound of the meat of your choice whether it be beef, chicken, pork, etc.
