I had a Thai Banquet on Sunday...washed down with Singha beer. :love:

Lamb curry in the slow cooker worked really well :love: It needs a bit less time cooking though, the lamb was a bit squishy. Maybe browning the meat first and slow cooking for a shorter time would be better. I shall experiment (as soon as I've finished cleaning the damn thing) :idiot:

This is mainly for Cardinal Fang but if anyone else knows please chip in.

When doing a curry in a slow cooker is it better to fry the onions/peppers/chilli powder first and then stick that in the slow cooker or just slow cook it all from the start? Last time I tried it the onions were cooked but didn't taste like usual, does it just need a bit more time for them to get properly soft? :confused:

I tend to slice and dice everything the night before and stick it in the fridge, then in the morning put the pot into the slow cooker and press go - no precooking of anything.

I know most recipes say pre cook onions and stuff. However as my cooker is on for 10 hours or so, and I slice thinly, they do tend to do pretty well without it. However ultimately it depends on your taste.

This is all making me v hungry...and I just had lunch.


Did an unusual version of a Goulash yesterday with Beef Sausage, Choriso, Paprika, Chilli, Red Pepper, Onions and Sour Cream.

My wife has a poorly tummy this morning though. :paranoid:

We bought a jar of the above stuff and we found you have to be very sparing with it...it seems to have been made from the hottest chilli peppers known to man which have then gone through some sort of nuclear fusion in the heart of the sun.

Also I grew a couple of hot chilli plants this year which have produced very small red chilli peppers in great abundance...but they are vicious little buggers...I have given most of them away!

Bart, I did the exact same thing, but with only one chilli plant. Those little jalapeños are enough to kill any bacteria known to humankind. Seriously.

I made chilli jam with mine. The first batch I left out the seeds, and it wasn't that hot. The second batch I left them in. That one was certainly interesting... :haha:
