Instant Pot 10 Minute Easy Chicken Curry- Dump & Go Instant Pot Recipe

Dump & Go Instant Pot Chicken Curry, ready in just 10 minutes…

This is the easiest & the delicious chicken curry you will be able to make in the Instant Pot. The best part is all you have to do is dump all the ingredients in the stainless steel pot and let the IP pressure cook for 10 minutes.

I didn’t saute the onions or tomatoes, after making chicken curry this way I’m convinced that I can skip the sauteing onions/tomato part while cooking curries in IP. Making chicken curry couldn’t get any easier & tastier. Have all the ingredients ready, dump them, cook & enjoy.
