  1. I just got married and received an instant pot as a gift (having never cooked before!). I don’t live near any family and had to cook something for dinner. I searched for and Indian IP recipe & this was the first thing that popped up. I watched it, made a grocery list, went shopping and followed your recipe as closely as I could. My husband loved it soooo much, he wanted me to make it again the following day! Thanks for your easy to make & easy to follow recipes! I’ve watched many of your recipes that look easy/ we would like & I can’t wait to start trying them out! 🙂

  2. Right now im eating the most tasteless 'Indian' food ever,I should have tried one of these recipes. My GF Thinks She Can Cook Indian Food….She Can't.

  3. My chicken has turned out drowing in watery thin liquid..and i didnt even add any water as you suggested as it seems to make alot on its in before pressure mode. Not sure why mine has failed. I used whole chicken thighs too with bone in and 2mins pressure not long enough to make tender. Maybe you can specify what size chicken pieces or type of chicken pieces please.

  4. Ma’am I just have to say thank you for this step by step recipe! Haven’t tried it yet but I can already tell this will taste AMAZING

  5. You can cook it in a pressure cooker on gas cooker, it is much better cooking on gas… u cannot manage temperatures on this pot so that meals doesnt cook properly… I have that pot and so that i know the difference….

  6. Cool video. But just a heads up when tasting for salt try it after the chicken is cooked…. it’s not good to try it while the chicken is raw obviously.
