Add the garlic, ginger, curry powder, cinnamon, and cardamom. Stir for 30 seconds, until fragrant. 3. Stir in tomatoes and bring to a simmer. Season with salt and pepper. 4. Place potatoes in bottom of the slow cooker; top with chicken and prepared tomato sauce. 5. Set cooker to low for 6 to 8 hours. 6. Half an hour before serving, shred the chicken, remove bones and fold in the yogurt and peas. Add additional garlic or curry to taste.
If you prefer to "set it and forget it" you can skip sauteing the onions and spices in the beginning. Pre-cooking them yields a dish with a much fuller flavor though so we only recommend skipping it if you're short on time.
