Today I am posting another simple recipe like slow cooker aloo-palak (potato and spinach curry) I posted last week. Aloo-Baingan  (Potato Eggplant Curry) is also simple recipe for quick week night dinner or lunch. All you have to do it cut some vegetables, add tempering, put it all in slow-cooker, cover it and let it sit on high for 2 hours !
