Punjabi lobia masala in slow cooker

In India, the concept of slow cooking has been around for a long, long time. Slow cooker imitates the age old Indian cooking method called Dum Pukht where foods like rice, meats and vegetables are placed in an earthen pot, seasoned with spices and the top is then sealed with wet dough so that no steam escapes and the food is slowly cooked in that steam. These one pot slow-cooked meals were full of flavor and super delicious. Tried and true, slow-cookers are a great help in Indian cooking.
