Mayflower Curry Powder has been a godsend on many occasion. It has all the spices (cumin,turmeric etc) and thickeners you need to make a very tasty curry.This makes it very economical if you fancy a curry and don't have it all to hand. I use the extra hot blend which is actually not as scary as it sounds. Its still relatively mild in flavour with just a little bit of a kick to it and is perfect for the Slow Cooker as it cooks off some of the heat and leaves it with a full bodied flavour. There's this belief that you need to cook it on the stove to blend it smoothly but as you can see, you dont...it melts into the liquid in the SC leaving you with a smooth sauce. I've added an apple into this recipe as it goes really well with pork obviously, plus the natural sugars help make it slightly milder too but you can leave it out if you wish. I've also fried the leeks etc and the Pork before adding to the SC as this tenderises the meat and adds flavour but you can just skip this, add everything in at the beginning and follow the rest of the recipe. The choice is yours. Im sure you and family will enjoy this recipe but feel free to adapt it by swapping the pork for chicken,turkey or beef. This also goes for the curry powder....if you'd rather use the mild version then thats fine too.Why not give this a try and let us know how you got on in the comments below.
