4 cloves Fresh Garlic (Leh-sun) - grated into a paste
½ inch piece Fresh Ginger (Adrak) - grated into a paste
2 Roma Tomatoes (Tamatar) - seeded and chopped
2 Medium Yukon Gold Potatoes (Aloo) - peeled and cut into ½ inch 'cubes'
2 Fresh Green Chiles (Hari Mirch) - seeded and split lengthwise

1 Large Carrot (Gajar) - peeled and small chopped
1 medium Onion (Pyaz) - quartered and sliced thin
1 Red Bell Pepper (Simla Mirch) - seeded and small chopped
½ Cup Green Peas (Mutter) - frozen is fine but bring to room temp before adding
2 Tbs Tomato Paste (Tamatar)
1 Tbs Garam Masala
2 tsp Kosher Salt (Namak) + to taste
1 tsp Turmeric Powder (Haldi)
½ tsp Red Chile Powder (Lal Mirchi)
¾ Cup Plain Yogurt (Dahi) - can substitute soy or cashew yogurt if desired
¼ Cup Heavy Cream (Malai) - can substitute coconut cream (Nariyal ke Malai) if desired
¼ Cup Roasted, Unsalted Cashews (Kaju)
¼ Cup Golden Raisins (Kishmish)

  1. Turn 5 quart slow cooker (Crock-pot®) to high and allow to heat for 15 minutes
  2. Add the garlic and ginger paste, tomatoes, potatoes, green chiles, cauliflower, carrot, onion, bell pepper, and peas to the slow cooker along with the salt - Thoroughly combine and allow to cook (covered) for 10 minutes to release some liquid
  3. Add the tomato paste and mix to combine
  4. Add the garam masala, turmeric, and red chile powder and thoroughly combine
  5. Cover and allow to cook on low for 7 - 8 hours (high for 4 - 5 hours) or until carrot and cauliflower are just tender (there should be enough liquid released from the vegetables but check a couple of times after the first hour - if needed, add a little water so they are not dry)
  6. Reduce heat to low (if not already) and stir in the yogurt and cream - Allow to cook (uncovered) for another 30 minutes
  7. Adjust seasoning - Garnish as desired
  8. Serve hot along with basmati rice or chapatti, or part of any Indian meal
