This curry is like the ones you’ll find in India. It’s made with special spices, tomatoes, and creamy coconut milk. And it tastes delicious – the meat is so soft and yummy. If you cooked it on the stovetop, it would take 2-2.25 hours. But in a pressure cooker, it only takes a short time to get the same delicious results.
This curry tastes delicious! It has a lot of herbs and spices, but it’s not spicy. It’s made milder with tomatoes and coconut milk. Finally, it’s topped with cilantro. You can serve it with some rice, naan bread, or chapati.
Ingredients to Make Lamb Curry
To make an Indian curry, start by sautéing sweet onions, garlic, ginger, and cilantro in butter or ghee. Fresh ingredients are best but you can also use pre-grated jarred or tubed spices. Indian food wouldn’t be the same without spices! A curry has many different types of spices in it, but some of the basics that you’ll need are garam masala, mild curry, paprika, turmeric, cumin, and chili.
You can find these spices in supermarkets and online. If you don’t have one, just use a bit more of another. Whole spices usually need to be ground and toasted first but you don’t have to do that – just use the powdered form instead.
Instant Pot Lamb Curry-Cooking Method:
This lamb curry has two parts to make. Below, you’ll find a list of ingredients, instructions, and nutrition info. Here’s how to get started:
Part 1: Start by adding diced lamb shoulder, some warm Indian spices, and some tomatoes into a pot. Cook under high pressure for 25 minutes, then allow to naturally cool for 10 minutes. This will create tender meat and a delicious sauce.
Once the lamb curry is cooked, switch the Instant Pot to Saute mode again. Then add the vegetables as they don’t need much time to cook. To thicken the sauce, cook it uncovered for 5-7 minutes. Stir it often. To finish the sauce, stir in thickened coconut milk at the end.
How to Serve Instant Pot Lamb Curry
It takes about an hour to make lamb curry. During this time, you can prepare some sides. The easiest is to make some rice, or you can use pre-made rice that comes in 2-minute packets. If you want something tasty, try making spinach rice in the Instant Pot or turmeric rice. You can also buy pre-made naan bread and chapati bread to heat up. To give it some extra flavor, try brushing it with butter or olive oil and then sprinkling it with cumin and diced garlic. You can even make your own naan bread.
If you’re following a low-carb, paleo, Whole30, or keto diet, this curry is a great choice. You can switch butter for ghee or olive oil if needed. Serve with cauliflower rice, broccoli rice, low-carb naan bread, zucchini noodles, or steamed greens.
