My first question on here, so please go easy on me.
I have recently got a slow cooker and have been very pleased with the results, but that was using ready-made sachets of cooking mixes.
I am now trying to cook things properly from scratch but I think I'm missing something important.
This is the recipe I have used for chicken curry:-
- 4 chicken thighs
- 3 garlic cloves
- 2 large onions
- 1 green pepper
- 1 red pepper
- handful chopped spinach
- 100g mushrooms
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- 250ml chicken stock
- 3 heaped tsp of curry spice
I put everything in the slow cooker, give it a good stir, and then leave it to cook. It tastes nice, but the sauce is very watery.
I have used the same recipe in a pan and the sauce thickens after I simmer it for about 20 mins.
Do I need to change the recipe to use the slow cooker? Or am I doing something fundamentally wrong?
