Chicken Curry: Homemade Indian Food Anytime

stephen and I love Indian food but living in a small town in rural Minnesota means there are very few restaurants and any ethnic food has to be homemade.  So we have come up with an authentic chicken curry we can make in the crock pot whenever we’re in the mood. This curry powder has fenugreek seeds in it which we buy from The Spice House: You can buy them whole and roast them to bring out the sweet maple-y flavor or buy them pre-ground. These seeds are wonderful with pork dishes. They are also thought to help with digestion and to help stimulate breast milk production. They are essential to authentic curry powders and help make this dish spectacular. It can serve up to 8 so it is also great for entertaining.

  • 4 pounds chicken pieces,with bones
  • Chicken stock

    • I usually add tomatoes when I make it in the summer but tomatoes are a rare commodity in rural Minnesota in the winter.
