Slow Cooker Aloo Gobi (V/GF)

Aloo Gobi is one of my favourite Indian dishes, tied with Palak Tofu.  I hope I’ve done this flavourful dish justice here.  As I’ve said before, cooking in the slow cooker is a great option for hot days when you don’t want to heat up the kitchen; or when you want to prepare something early…
