If you have some time to spare, give this recipe a try. The stew is full of flavours, think coconut, curry, turmeric, ginger, tomatoes and lemon, all slow-cooked to perfection. Replace the six to seven hours of slow cooking process with a Thermos® Shuttle Chef®, which comes with a 5mm reinforced base to ensure that your food does not get overcooked or burnt. With a Shuttle Chef®, you also get to save the time spent in the kitchen watching your food or you can choose to leave your food to slow-cook overnight!
