Every recipe I have made from The Indian Slow Cooker. Especially "Dad's Rajmah." I won best vegetarian chili at a chili cookoff with 600+ attendees with that recipe.

Here are some of my more flavorful recipes. I recommend looking at some Indian or Middle Eastern cook books. There you will find flavorful and spicy dishes. I cook with the "Indian Slow Cooker" cookbook and I have to tone down the spiciness quite a bit!! I recommend hitting a Middle Eastern grocery store for cheap spices in bulk!

If you like Indian food (much of it healthy), I recommend this book. (Not affiliated with it in any way, just like it):

I just got the book The Indian Slow Cooker which has a lot of vegetarian recipes in it.

u/amongstthetrees · 5 pointsr/vegetarian

This book is fantastic. It isn't 100% vegetarian but I think only about 8 recipes have meat, which I just ignore. Everything I have made from it has been spectacular. Indian food loves slow cooking.

For all you slow cooker fans, you should get The Indian Slowcooker cookbook. The recipes are simple and just packed with amazing flavors.

We cook a lot of beans in the crock pot. It's super easy to do - soak the beans in water overnight in the fridge and then turn the crockpot on in the morning on low with beans + veggies. When you get home 8 hours later voila! We cook some bacon when it's done and chop that to add sometimes. Mine has a timer that allows me to set it for 8 hours on low (or high). It then reverts to keep warm. I would suggest this cookbook for some tasty options. I checked it out from my local library before buying a copy. When I make beans I usually do 2 cups of beans and 6 cups of water. Black eyed peas are great because they require no soaking beforehand. DO NOT do this with kidney beans though. They have a poisonous ingredient that requires boiling on the stove.

It's not too hard to eat for gaining... I think the intimidating part is figuring out the right habits and making it a regular part of your life. Between cooking, cleaning, and eating, it can take a pretty tiny amount of time. The trick, is to make a fuck ton of food all at once and keep it in the fridge. Make a big ass crock pot full of indian food, or meat or something. Make a big ass thing of rice. Put the crock pot slop on the rice, heat it up (if you're feeling fancy) and eat. Want some extra veggies? Get a big ass bag of greens from cosco and put that shit on the bottom of the bowl. Bam. Breakfast? Oatmeal with peanut butter and banana. Every lunch and dinner forever? Crock pot and rice. Feeling fancy? Wrap that shit in a tortilla and call it a burrito. You get the idea.

The main thing that's tricky with this... you'll need to plan it out so you don't need to go to the store more than once a week, less even if you can get away with it. Costco's awesome if you have one nearby, 4lbs of beef and 20lb bags of oatmeal all lasts a long time.

The big thing that was hard for me when I was having to figure it out... is putting in the time investment the first few weeks to get it all figured out. I like this book a lot, try a few recipes. See what you like. But yeah, it'll take a little experimenting before you can really get it down to a quick and easy routine. It's really worth figuring out though... if you're eating decently, you'll save a lot of money from not eating out, and you'll have a lot more in the tank to give to classes and working out.

Not sure what kind of friends you have, but cooking with friends can work too, especially if you've got a friend that's trying to figure their shit out too. Plus... ladies (and men?) like guys who cook, and it's really not that hard to figure out the basics. Course, my partner's got some professional chef experience, so she can bust out a fucking quiche or shepherd's pie starting from raw ingredients in like 15 minutes... but you don't need to be at that level to eat well in a small amount of time, and she still appreciates my contributions, amateurish as they may be.

Since you guys are posting slow cooker recipes, I really recommend this book: The Indian Slow Cooker

One of my favorite things to make is chicken vindaloo in the slow cooker (recipe below. Warning! This feeds a LOT of people, so scale back as needed):

  • 8 large yellow onions

  • 6 tablespoons white wine vinegar

  • 8 inches ginger root

  • 20 garlic cloves

  • 6 to 10 serrano chilies (depending on your heat tolerance)

  • 1 tablespoon turmeric powder (it's not Desi without some haldi)

  • 1 tablespoon ground coriander

  • 1 tablespoon garam masala

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder

  • 1 large tablespoon of coarse salt

  • 1 tablespoon black mustard seed

  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorns

  • 4 pounds chicken

  • 1/2 cup water

    Peel and slice the onions. Warm 2 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and fry the onions until almost caramelized, then add the vinegar. Stir until the liquid evaporates, then puree and set aside.

    Puree the ginger, garlic, chilies, turmeric, coriander, garam masala and cinnamon and set aside for now.

    Grind the salt, mustard seeds and peppercorn and put into the slow cooker.

    Cut the chicken into bite sized chunks, and put it, along with all the things you set aside into the slow cooker. Add the water and let it sit on low for 6 hours.

    Serve with rice or naan.

Oh I love Indian too! Mostly just having to measure the amount of rice I take to keep it reasonable, but otherwise it's pretty high protein and if you make it yourself can be moderate in fat and carbs. And super filling! Check out this book if you have a slow cooker!

u/ImAGiraffe123 · 2 pointsr/slowcooking

The Indian Slow Cooker by Anupy Singla lists multiple recipes where you toss dry lentils into the slow cooker without pre-cooking.

I did notice that she lists cooking on High setting in most recipes. Maybe that has something to do with the pre-soaking and boiling to kill toxins mentioned below.

I've only made one recipe from it as I just got it last week, and it took me a while to eat through all that vindaloo, so I'm afraid I can't give you a detailed review. Give me another few weeks, though, I have a feeling I will be making a lot more Indian food...

The vindaloo recipe is actually visible if you go to Amazon and look inside to page 114, the alterations I made to it were just substituting peppers and accidentally adding far too little ginger. If you'd like me to type it up I can when I get home.

I'm curious, though, where have you seen uneven reviews for it? I only looked on Amazon, and it's got very positive reviews there.

The Indian Slow Cooker. I picked it up a few weeks ago and it has been perfect. It makes excellent food and perfect if your

u/tujhedekha · 2 pointsr/vegan

I'm obsessed with every recipe from The Indian Slow Cooker by Anupy Singla. The recipes are easy, flavorful, healthy, and authentic. A lot are vegan or easily veganizable, as she's also the author of Vegan Indian Cooking, which also has some slow cooker recipes. Both cookbooks are highly recommended!

u/Luai_lashire · 2 pointsr/vegetarian

Indian food is pretty much made for slow cookers, and there is a long history of vegetarian and vegan indian food too. I would start with Anupy Singla's "the Indian Slow Cooker": but be careful about quantities, her recipes are meant to make huge batches so you may need to size it down if you have a smaller slow cooker and no fridge to store leftovers.

u/bedazzledfarts · 1 pointr/food

If you have a slow cooker this book makes the world of Indian food so much easier to understand. All the recipes are very easy, flavorful, and all are pretty darn cheap. I highly recommend it.

u/jeffyagalpha · 1 pointr/vegan

Anupy Singla has an Indian slow cooker vegan cookbook with some outstanding recipes. The garlic-ginger toor dal and methi carrots are personal faves.

Edit: There are some non-vegan recipes in there as well, but the subs are pretty easy for the most part and they are mostly vegan in any case.
