  • 2tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 1small Onion
  • 1 tbsp Chopped garlic and ginger or 1/2 tsp ginger/garlic paste
  • 1/2tsp Cumin
  • 1/4tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/4tsp Black pepper
  • Salt to taste

  1. Turn on your Instant Pot to the sauté setting on medium.
  2. Once the display reads “HOT, add the oil and the onions. Let the onions brown until they’re golden. Then add the fresh ginger and garlic or the paste. Let cook for a minute until incorporated and add the extra 1/4 cup stock.
  3. Add all the spices and let the mixture simmer for a minute. Then add the tomato paste and mix it all together. Once the mixture has thickened a bit, a minute or so, add the chicken and mix it to coat thoroughly.
  4. Immediately add the rice and the stock and give it a good stir. Make sure nothing is sticking to the bottom or your pot won’t come to pressure. *TIP: If you’re in a rush, using hot broth will reduce the time it takes your pot to come to pressure.
  5. Place the lid and lock it. Make sure the knob is on sealing. Turn the pot off, then select Manual and adjust to 7 minutes.
  6. Once the cook is done and the clock starts counting down, wait 5 minutes and then quick release. Make sure the pin has dropped completely before opening the lid and fluffing up the rice.
  7. Service with a salad and spicy tomato sauce and yogurt on the side!
