1-2 tsp chillie powder
1 tsp turmeric powder
2-3 tsp curry powder
1 inch piece of cinnamon
2-3 pieces of goraka
1 can of coconut milk

Fry the onions, green chillies, ginger, garlic and curry leaves in about 1 tbsp of oil, till golden brown. Next add all the spices, fry for a minute for so till fragrant.
Now add the rest of ingredients, except coconut milk, stir to coat. Add salt.
Transfer the mixture to a slow cooker, add coconut milk. Stir and cook on low heat for at least 6 hours. The curry would turn a dark brown color when done. (I usually let it cook over night)
You can cook this also in a pressure cooker. Cook for about 20-25 minutes at steady pressure (Since cooking times, vary depending on the type of cooker you have, use your judgment here)
If you want to cook on the stove, cook under low heat in a heavy bottom pan.
