The other day, I got out the slow cooker and made an Indian Chicken Stew. I found the recipe here: http://www.bhg.com/recipe/chicken/slow-cooker-indian-chicken-stew/
All afternoon, the enticing aroma of the stew filled the house! When it was finally time to serve it up, I fixed some couscous (instead of the suggested rice), and enjoyed this delicious dish! Amazing flavor. It was spicy, but only enough for flavor - the spice did not overpower or burn, which sometimes happens in Indian dishes. I enjoyed this stew very much, and can see where if you swap out some spices/herbs and an ingredient here or there, you could adapt this stew to other styles.
