• Who wrote it: Neela Paniz
• Who published it: Ten Speed Press
• Number of recipes: 60
• Other highlights: So many Indian soups, curries, and other dishes rely on a bit of upfront work followed by slow cooking at low temperatures to break down tough meats and bring flavors together. Sounds like a job for the slow cooker, for sure.
Neela Paniz gives us recipes for classic Indian dishes, all spiffed up for the slow cooker. If you get these started before you leave for work in the morning, dinner is even easier than stopping for take-out on your way home.
