You know how I love me some crockpot recipes for Tuesday night dinner.  This week we went with an Indian recipe!

Even though I’m fairly new to liking cauliflower, it seems to be popping up in a bunch of my recipes.

Although I didn’t follow this recipe to a T (I mean, do I ever?), it turned out really flavorful and fantastic!

I made this dish on Monday knowing that we could have it Tuesday for dinner and then leftovers for lunch throughout the week.

We both LOVED it!  You’ll note in my picture a lack of chicken. I noticed that too Tuesday night when I got home and went to heat up dinner.  Apparently, the BOY picked out most of it.

So my recommendation would be to increase your chicken to 2 lbs!  Below is the recipe as written but I’ll tell you that I didn’t do anything with the extra spices and yogurt. I just mixed curry powder into my yogurt and stirred it in.

Mmmm!  Give this one a go and let me know what you think!
