Slow Cooker Vegetarian Indian Curry

This wonderful made-from-scratch Vegetarian Indian Curry recipe floods our house with its exotic aromas for hours before it’s ready. And it always brings back fondest memories of New Jawad Longchamp and Joyti, our two favorite Indian restaurants in Paris. Part of the experience always was savoring the delicious teasing for blocks and blocks as we walked down the streets before dinner.

Of course, we know Indian food is not French. But we also know how much the French love Indian food — as evidenced by the plethora of Indian restaurants in Paris and all across France.

Nuanced flavor.

It is part of the French way of life no matter what the origins of a dish. And no one is more experimental with flavors than the French.

You can spice this curry up more if you wish by using Hot Curry powder in place of regular Curry powder or by adding a bit of your favorite Red Pepper flakes or Cayenne. Or both. You can eat it as is or serve it over rice (it’s not Keto if you eat it over grain rice, of course) or over riced cauliflower (the Keto-friendly way).

If you want to keep it Keto, be sure to omit the potatoes. And to keep the carbs down we often do half-peas/half-green beans or substitute green beans for the peas altogether. That’s your call and it often depends on how fat-adapted you are.

We hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do.

Indulge your nose all afternoon. This is one of those dishes that cooks low and slow most of the day. And so you get to enjoy it hours before the meal.

The problem is waiting long enough for it to be fully cooked.
