    Thanks Rakhii. Weightloss made me think about your crock pot ideas hugsmiley

    I have few questions:[

    1.Does our Tuvar and moong dal cook in it? can I mount the sambar in the morning?

    2.Fried rice? Doesn't it turn mushy if the rice is soaking for 10hrs?

    3. Does it consume too much power?(well my DH would be concerned so I better be informed)

    4. Do you recommend a specific brand?

    (QUOTE=Rakhii;3257381]Chitra, below are the one's I tried.

    1. Fried Rice with so many veggies in it.
    2. Minestrone soup
    3. Wild-rice soup with veggie broth
    4. lentils (toor dal) soup with chopped cabbage
    5. Dump veggies with couple of veggie boullians in it
    6. Potato ad carrot roasts

    What really helped with crock pot was the weight loss as I need to use no oil at all. If you want the Indian taste, you can add tadka with chili powder and desired spices.
    It keeps the food great. Takes me about 5 mins in the morning to put everything in the crockpot and set the cooking time as 10 hours. By the time I got home, TA DA! boiling hot food ready!![/QUOTE]

    see above Chitra.

    But in all honesty, look more about indian recipes in this sow cooker. I must confess, most of mine are non-veg.
