This easy slow cooker chicken curry is so easy that even the kids can make this and that’s exactly the way I like it.
It’s such a flexible recipe – I use red lentils to bulk it out and even though this one is made with tikka seasoning, I do use other types too and love pretty much all of them other than the korma ones.
On the subject of seasonings, I know I could make my own and that’s great but I prefer this because it’s super easy and probably more cost effective than buying all the different herbs and spices that I’d need to make my own blend.
There’s a tikka spice blend mix here that I looked at before I made this to see just how easy it was and it would cost me a fair amount to buy all the things I needed – especially considering that the small amounts needed would probably mean some would go to waste as it would take me forever to use a full tub using a teaspoon at a time. I feel like this is one of those cases where shop bought works better than homemade for us.
I did consider writing down all the specific measurements but I decided to keep it simple and write it as we make it. 😉
