Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in the pot of an electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) on 'Saute' mode. Add onion and garlic; saute until soft, about 3 minutes. Add celery and cook until bright green, about 2 minutes longer. Add potatoes, cherry tomatoes, and carrots. Stir to combine.

  • Place chicken slices on top of the sauteed vegetables. Pour coconut milk over chicken. Add fish sauce and allow liquid to come to a boil, about 5 minutes. Mix in water, frozen peas, curry paste, brown sugar, and crushed bouillon cubes.

  • Place lid on the pot and lock in place. Bring to high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; cook for 12 minutes. Release pressure through natural-release method, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If thicker curry is desired, bring to a boil for a longer time in 'Saute' mode to reduce. You may also mix together 2 tablespoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoon cold water and add to the curry for a quicker thickening.

If you are in a hurry, when cooking time is up, you can use the quick release valve according to manufacturer's instructions.
