  5. Cook for another minute, stirring constantly, until aromatic. Place all of the ingredients in the slow cooker.

Tip: Are you running low on ingredients? To make this meal even easier, use a ready-made curry paste. 4 tbsp rogan josh curry paste in place of the garlic, ginger, chopped chilli, dried spices, and coriander stalks: add in step 2 when the onions and carrots have softened, simmer for 1 minute, then move everything to the slow cooker and continue with the recipe.
