Slow Cooker Curry Recipes

What’s not to love about crockpots? 

They are readily available, economical to use, and make any meal all the more delicious by enhancing its flavors through their slow cooking process.

They might not be wise to use for last-minute cooking, but they do a great job when you have the whole day left to cook dinner but don’t really feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen.

I must admit, I have a lot of those days, which is why my crockpot is my best friend. 

I use it year round. In the summer, it keeps me from overusing my oven, and in the winter, I’m making aromatic comfort food and walking away.

My favorite meals to cook in crockpots definitely include curries. A curry slow cooker recipe is worth saving when I find a good one.

There is an array of unique curry recipes I can try with any meat. 

Curry in the crockpot is packed with rich flavor as the slow cooking process enhances each flavor in the curry. 

Here is a compilation of the best curry recipes in the slow cooker that you will absolutely love if you have a crockpot.  

Not too sure what to think about curry? We have a guide for you.

This is one of my favorite slow cooker curry recipes that I like to make for dinners with friends and family.

I add the chicken, vegetables, and spices, give it a stir and leave it to cook while I prepare the rest of the dishes. 

This curry has a creamy texture with a unique taste due to its Jamaican curry powder. 

The taste is mild, sweet, and not too spicy. 

You can serve this curry on its own since it has all the vegetables in it already or with some brown rice.

2. Slow Cooker Chicken Tikka Masala

If you like spicy flavors, this is the perfect one. 

It has the quintessential spicy Indian taste. It also has a hint of sweetness due to the added coconut milk. 

This curry takes longer to make, so it works great as a midweek dinner. 

You can prepare the ingredients and add them to the crockpot before you leave for work, and by the time you return, this aromatic, delicious dish will be ready.

Have it on its own or with a side of white rice. Read more about the recipe here.

3. Slow Cooker Beef Curry

This is a simple yet scrumptious curry made in the crockpot, which you can prepare beforehand for dinner. 

The best part about this recipe is that it is low-fat and light, since it does not use any coconut milk or cream. 

While this curry can be served on its own, you can also serve it with rice, naan, yogurt, or fresh salad.

4. Slow Cooker Vegetable Curry

This curry recipe in the slow cooker is an excellent option for vegetarians and vegans, or anyone who prefers a lighter curry. 

This recipe is dairy-free and gluten-free as well.  

Just chop up the vegetables and sauté the onions before adding them all in the crockpot with the herbs, chicken broth and chickpeas. 

You can use any vegetables in this recipe and even add some beans according to your preference.

5. Yellow Chicken Curry

This is also another curry option that your family would enjoy. 

This curry slow cooker is made with lots of vegetables and has a delicious sweet and spicy taste.
 The sweet taste comes from the hint of peanut butter added to the curry. 

You can serve this curry with rice or quinoa, or if you want to stay lower carb, you can serve it with cauliflower rice and fresh salad on the side. 

You can find the recipe here.

6. Creamy Chicken Curry

This is the best comfort food for the winters and feels like a hug in a bowl. 

Assemble the chicken, vegetables, coconut milk, and seasoning to the crockpot, and the delicious curry will be ready in a few hours. 

You can make it mild or spicy based on your preferences. 

Top the curry with some coriander and serve it warm with some basmati rice and a dash of yogurt on the side.

7. Crockpot Thai Chicken Curry

This peanutty red curry is one of my favorites overall. I’m such a fan of Thai food anyway, and while I love all curries that aren’t too spicy, I’ve saved the best for last. 

Looking at the ingredient list you might completely think I’ve gone bonkers, but the gang over at Show Me The Yummy have mastered the authentic flavor of take-out Thai. 

Don’t skimp on the fish sauce (just don’t smell it first). Don’t leave out the ginger, either. It only takes three hours on low, because you’ll have whole chicken when it’s done, not shredded. 

They chunk theirs up and add peanuts to the top, and I don’t need the peanuts. But the peanut butter in this is just divine. I may be known to add an extra tablespoon of pb, because I can.

This one’s my favorite, and now I gotta go make this.

The bottom line

Slow cookers are the best thing for weekdays when you are too busy to really do sides.

And with these slow cooker curry recipes, you will want to keep using your slow cooker every day. They are just so handy. 

And if you love curry, you’ll love the time-saving aspect of getting your favorite meal on the table.
