Hi Craig Wallace,
There are a few reasons that I can think of to answer your question about why fry food first if you are going to then cook it in your Slow Cooker.
1. Frying on HIGH heat will brown meat which then releases a delicious rich depth of flavour which is otherwise not obtainable when Slow Cooked alone.
2. Frying spice will release the trapped fragrance within the spices. If this is not done the intensity and true fragrance is not able to be released and instead a muted or dull flavour can be the result.
3. By heating the ingredients first, the overall cooking time is reduced as the Slow Cooker doesn't have to spend the first hour bringing up the fridge temperature of the ingredients to the required cooking heat.
4. Cooking meat first will seal all the sides of the meat, thus reducing loss of meat juices and will produce a more moist and succulent result and will prevent a dry stringy texture to the meat.
I hope this helps shed some light on your enquiry. Enjoy your cooking.

Hi Adele,
I think the 6OZ (180g) of Green Cardamom Pods actually should be 6OZ (180g) GREEK YOGHURT.

Hello. Can i ask why you need to fry anything before you put it in the slower cooker? i thought the point was that you put it all in and cook it over 6 hours. Please excuse my ignorance as i am about to buy a slower cooker and use this recipe.

many thanks
