Slow Cooker Indian Stew

0 from 0 votes

You'll be amazed at how easy it is to make such a delicious dish!

This is a great stew to make when you don’t have time to cook. Just throw everything in the slow cooker and come home hours later to a comforting meal that is full of flavor. Tip: Any type of bean will work in this recipe. I use a 6½ quart slow cooker. If you have a smaller version of this appliance, simply cut the ingredients in half.

  1. Using the listed ingredients the whole thing is about 2500 calories. As it is, this recipe is 59% carbohydrate, 10% protein, and 31% fat (fat is mostly from the coconut milk). If you added a pound of lien protein such as chicken it would be more balanced as an entree and would easily serve 6-8 people at 450-600 cal per serving.
