This is a typical southern Indian dish where coconut cream (or coconut milk) is a common ingredient. This dish can be served hot, warm or at room temperature like a traditional potato salad. Recipe is from my Gourmet Vegetarian slow Cooker Cookbook.

How to Make Slow Cooker Potatoes and Carrots in Coconut Curry

Step-by-Step

  1. Wash the potatoes thoroughly, then place into the slow cooker insert and add the water. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours, or until the potatoes are fairly tender (cooking time will depend upon the size and type of potato you use). Tiny red potatoes, for instance, will generally cook in less than 4 hours, so use a fork to determine doneness. If your potatoes are fairly large, you may wish to cut them into quarters.
  2. In a saute pan, heat the oil and saute the onion over medium-high heat until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic, cumin seeds, and fennel seeds and continue cooking for another 2-3 minutes. Add the onion, carrots and curry powder to the potatoes and carefully stir in the coconut cream. Re-cover and continue cooking for 1 hour.
  3. Add salt to taste, then spoon the curry into a bowl or onto plates and garnish with the chile slices and cilantro.
