Simple slow cooker fruity pork curry

From Cookipedia

I thought I would make a nice simple fruity curry and cook it in the slow cooker; feeling lazy!

Our slow cooker is neat as it also has the ability to fry so the pork and leeks can be fried off in the slow cooker first. If your slow cooker cannot fry then either start the frying in a frying pan, of just ignore the frying, it won't make a massive difference.

Chef's notes

If you don't have ghee, just double the amount of oil. Normal orange juice will be fine too.


Making a slightly different version of this tonight so making notes in case it's a keeper.

Largely similar, the main differences being:

This was nice but it was much too hot for Anne, sorry. Only use 1 tbs of curry powder and very little chilli powder in future. 😓

Chef's noters

I've mixed my curry powder blend and Taste Sensation Kashmiri Curry Powder, together with ½ teaspoon of turmeric and a pinch of fenugreek; I like to fiddle with my spices!
