You aren’t going to BELIEVE how easy it is to make this at home.  You might not already have garam masala or curry powder – but you NEED to get some!  Once you try this, your family is going to be requesting it again and again so you’ll want to have a jar of each in your pantry at ALL times.

The sauce this creates by cooking low and slow, flavors marrying together all scrumptiously, is SO GOOD!  Just throw everything in your crockpot and serve with your choice of rice (we LOVE Jasmine Rice for this dish but basmati is really good too) and garnish with some chopped fresh cilantro.  (Unless, of course,  you are one of the unfortunates who were born with the gene that makes it taste like soap…so sad.)

It’s so easy to set out family style for everyone to enjoy and serve themselves.    If you don’t already have one of these casserole style rectangular Crock Pots – you SO need to get one (or three).  It cooks everything so nice and in an even layer and your ladle doesn’t sink way down getting all gicky.

We eat this at least twice a month.  At first it was once a week.  For a reaaaally long time.  Have I mentioned that it’s really, REALLY yummy?

As amazing as it is the first day – it’s even MORE amazing the next day or three reheated as leftovers.  Having any leftover, however, is going to be tricky.  EVERYONE will want seconds.  Even your picky eaters.

Instructions
Optional Prep for Additional Depth of Flavor
  1. Cut up the raw chicken into apx. 1 inch/bite sized pieces and add it to the crockpot with the diced carrots. Saute chopped onion in butter or olive oil (or combination) over medium to medium high heat until just brown. Add in the Fresh peeled and grated ginger root and minced garlic and saute for an additional minute or two. Add the garam masala and salt, stirring to incorporate and toast the spices. Stir in the tomato paste, curry powder and finely diced jalapeno. If you want to create an extra smooth texture - puree this mixture in a food processor or blender. Add the mixture into the crockpot with the chicken and carrots and about 1/4 of the can of coconut milk and stir together well. Cover the remaining 3/4 can of coconut milk and refrigerate it during cooking time. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 4 hours. 1/2 hour before cooking time is up - create a paste by mixing the cornstarch and water (optional if you like a little thicker sauce). Add the paste to crockpot along with the remaining 3/4 can of coconut milk. Stir together well and let it cook on low thickening up for 20-30 minutes before serving. Serve with chopped fresh cilantro garnish and basmati or jasmine rice.
