Crockpot Curry

No matter the time of year, curry is a no brainer!! If it is something you enjoy but have never tried making, this is definitely your recipe! There is quite a bit of spice to it, so adjust accordingly ;) Don’t shy away from it though, it’s packed with protein, circulation boosting & inflammation fighting spices, and of course, loads of flavour!
