a slow cooker (crock pot) is an excellent way of cooking some Indian dishes, of which there are hundreds which could be called curries (though not in India!).
Look at recipes for traditional dishes like kormas*, which are braises (long slow low-heat cooking). Rogan josh is one such korma which I've cooked using a slow cooker :>
Note, you will have to use tougher cuts of meat which end up 'melt in the mouth', but you probably already know that
In India, rogan josh is made with mutton, which is a euphamism for goat, but lamb works well, if kept 'on the bone'. You could try recipes for shab deg, in India this dish is cooked over-night, and eaten for breakfast!!
*note, a korma is not the insipidly sweet, mild coconut-laden dish sold in so-called 'Indian restaurants', it is a whole range of dishes (including dopiazs and rezalas), some of which can contain significant quantities of chillies. All are meat dishes, usually 'lamb', but some are chicken.
