15 minute Instant Pot Shrimp Curry- Easy Shrimp Curry

15 minutes and you will have a delicious shrimp curry made in the Instant Pot…

I’m obsessed with shrimp and this is one of the dishes I make often in the Instant Pot. Throw in all the ingredients and pressure cook for 3 minutes followed by a quick pressure release; delicious shrimp curry will be ready and made effortlessly.

5 minutes to saute all the ingredients, 5 minutes for the pressure to build, 3 minutes for pressure cooking and 2 minutes for the final cooking- that’s 15 minutes in total, while pressure building we are not doing anything IP will take care of that.

This shrimp curry can be served with basmati rice, white rice, roti, chapati, appam, idiyappam, orotti etc.
