Slow cooker dinners are brilliant time and budget savers. I typically put my slow cooker on most Tuesday evenings as my youngest has netball training till late. I put the slow cooker on in the morning so that dinner is ready when we get home, therefore eliminating the need to get takeaway. This slow cooker Moroccan Curry is fabulously quick and tasty and packed with loads of vegetables and chickpeas. You can use beef or lamb, whichever you desire really.
I found this recipe at Claire K Creations I have adjusted the recipe ever so slightly using less mango chutney.
I like using the slow cooker, it’s budget-friendly, as I mentioned above it saves you purchasing take away, but you can also buy the cheaper cuts of meat which helps to cut down the costs. And if you use a large slow cooker double the recipe so you can freeze it to have handy for a quick dinner one night you don’t feel like cooking.
