Instant Pot 10 Minute Chicken & Potato Curry- Easy Chicken Potato Curry

Chicken & potato curry made in the Instant Pot…

This can be done in a dump & go style by adding all the ingredients into the stainless steel pot and pressure cooked for 8 minutes followed by quick pressure release.

I prefer to saute the onions and tomatoes for a few minutes before adding the chicken and potato. This is an easy to make curry that can be served with chapati, rice, bhatura, poori, appam etc.
