Sometimes the only thing that will hit the spot is a good bowl of curry. Hot day, cold day – I just have a craving once in awhile and it doesn’t go away until I’ve gotten my hands on some.
If you’ve never made curry before – never fear! This is just as easy as any other crockpot recipe – just assemble your ingredients, drop ‘em in the crockpot, and it’s good to eat in just a few hours.
I like to serve this with basmati or jasmine rice. It’s not only a good way to stretch the serving size if you have unexpected guests, it’s also just plain yummy.
Feel free to adjust the amount of heat (Sriracha) as you see fit. Mark likes it spicier than I do, while Brie prefers things as mild as possible.
Whatever you do, get this creamy, melt-in your mouth flavor-bomb of a comfort food into your life as soon as possible. You won’t regret it.
