Ok let's be real, it's hard to take a picture of curry and have it look appetizing. I mean, if you are lazy like me. I'm sure if you used a fancy camera and spend 40 minutes poking at the food and added a sprig of rosemary or whatever, it would looks awesome. But that's not my style.
I made this last Sunday and have been eating it for lunch all week. It's not a fancy curry, and it's definitely not meant to be authentic to any cuisine. It's a light, mild version that even people who hate curry would be able to enjoy. I ate it as-is but it would be nice as a side dish, maybe alongside salad and some grilled tofu.
Basic Crockpot Curried Potatoes with Chickpeas
3 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
1 can coconut milk (I used light)
1/2 tablespoon garam masala
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon coarse group pepper (or to taste)
1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
dash of cayenne if you like it hot
Mix everything in the crockpot and let it go on low for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally. It will be watery when you pump everything in, but the sauce will thicken from the potato starch. Don't let it overcook or else you'll end up with potato puree.
Adjust the seasonings before you serve; the potatoes will soak up a lot of salt so you may need to add more. You can add more garam masala if you want to pump up the flavor as well.
