This pressure-cooked chicken curry is easy to prepare. I'm not a fan of spicy, so I have made this with mild yellow curry powder. Feel free to substitute your preferred curry for your desired heat level. Serve over basmati rice.

  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Heat oil and butter. Add chicken and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add onion; cook and stir until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Return chicken to Instant Pot®. Add tomatoes and tomato powder. Close and lock the lid.

  • Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 20 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, for 10 minutes. Switch to the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions and release remaining pressure for about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Turn on Saute function. Add coconut milk, cumin, and remaining curry powder to the pot. Cook until sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I love using tomato powder as it has a robust taste, and while tomato paste may be used, I prefer tomato powder as I don't have to worry about leftover tomato paste. Honey powder is dehydrated honey, and while honey may be used I prefer honey powder as it is not sticky. Both may be found at the Savory spice shop, or your local grocer may carry them.
