Have you heard of the paleo diet? In a nutshell it’s eating food in it’s purest form….like they would have done in the olden days. No processed oils, grains, soy products, or starchy vegetables.
My parents have been trying out some paleo style cooking and when my mom made this curry for us during the holidays I instantly fell in love! We all loved it so much that we ended up making it several times during the holidays while we were staying with her.
Whether you are a fan of paleo cooking or not, you will LOVE this curry! As most slow cooker recipes go, this one is really easy to throw together and it tastes amazing! You can serve it with rice, or you can try it the paleo way and the way my family likes to eat it, which is served over roasted spaghetti squash!
