Slow Cooker Lamb (Or Chicken) Korma

“A mild, rich, creamy curry. This recipe is adapted from "Creamy lamb and almond curry" from Slow Cooking Curry & Spice Dishes (Humphries). Instead of using creme fraiche, I used creamed coconut. Delicious, and the meat just falls apart in your mouth! To grind the almonds, you can use a mortar and pestle.”
