Not Indian. That would be "masala" which is completely different. I think this is actually of Italian origin.

WOW! I made this for the first time yesterday and it is DELICIOUS!!! Anything in a slow cooker is something I will always try, but this has so few ingredients and so MUCH flavor I will make this again and again! Thanks for an incredible dinner!

What will you serve with it? A lot of directions one could go, rice, pasta, potatoes, all of which are loaded with carbs? vegtables maybe?
