  1. Heat olive oil in a deep pan. (Alternatively, you can use a French oven from start to finish instead of a slow cooker.) When oil is shimmering, put in minced garlic and ginger. Fry until fragrant, and then put in the veal. Brown the meat.

  2. Once the veal is beginning to brown, put in cumin/corriander, red pepper powder, oregano, and salt/pepper. Stir the meat and spices until well mixed. Turn the heat down if it seems like the spices are burning.

  3. Add the sour cream. Mix well. Then add the tomatoes and the sugar. Stir occasionally for the next few minutes, allowing the ingredients meld and form a curry base. There should be a fair amount of sauce at this point. But reduce this amount (on medium high heat) until the curry is coating the meat and the meat is starting to brown some more. It’s okay if some of the curry is browning and sticking to the bottom of the pan.

  4. Taste the sauce. It’s okay if it’s slightly on the salty or spicy side. It will get diluted in the slow cooking process. Once you approve of the taste and consistency of the curry, turn the heat off. Take the meat pieces out of the pan and transfer them to the slow cooker or put them in a separate dish if you plan to cook in the same French oven.

  5. Turn the heat up again under the original pan in which you browned the meat. Put in the water, and deglaze the pan. Once degalzed, pour this liquid into the slow cooker. If using the French oven, then turn heat down, and put the meat back in the pot. Add a bit more water to just cover the meat, if the water from the deglazing isn’t sufficient.

  6. Let the meat slow cook for between 2-3 hours. If you’re using the slow cooker, you can put it on the highest setting, and it will be done in 2 hours. On the last hour of cooking put in the cipollini onions and the potatoes.

  7. Check the meat. When its fork tender, its time to take the dish off the heat. If there is too much liquid, you can strain out the liquid and reduce it in a pan on the stove over high heat. Taste the curry after it has been reduced. Adjust saltiness, sweetness or heat factor to your liking. Ladle broth over the meat. Serve with rice or naan.
