Indian butter chicken is easy to make in an electric pressure cooker, such as Instant Pot®. After an overnight marinade in yogurt and traditional spices, you can use an Instant Pot® to cook every step, from toasting spices to cooking aromatics, to adding the tomatoes and chilli. You can even make a batch of basmati rice ahead of time.
Cheesecake in a pressure cooker? Yes it is. A creamy cheesecake relies on beating lots of air into the mixture before cooking it. It also requires steaming. When you bake a cheesecake in the oven, you also need to put a tray of hot water underneath the tin to ensure the top of the cheesecake does not crack. In an Instant Pot®, all you need is a little water and the trivet. The result is a decadent cheesecake with no fuss. Serve with fruit on top, such as ripe blackberries.
This simple vegan cabbage soup, takes about 30 minutes to make in an electric pressure cooker, such as the Instant Pot®. It is perfect for a short-term detox diet.
Creamy risotto with softened mushrooms and a sprinkling of cheese seems like a dish best ordered at a restaurant instead of made at home. That's because traditionally risotto is made slowly, stirring often, adding stock a little bit at a time, then more stirring. It's a labour-intensive dish that's worth the fuss! However, risotto made in a pressure cooker, is so simple and quick that it feels like cheating. It's not! In fact, you'll probably start making risotto far more often after you try this one.
You might feel that making lasagne in a pressure cooker is crazy. Don't you need an oven for those crunchy edges? How do you know it is cooked through? How can anyone make lasagne without baking it? Well, trust me - this one is well worth making. If you have a 15cm or 18cm springform tin (or loose based cake tin) and you kept the trivet that came with your Instant Pot®, you can make a delicious layered lasagne in 30 minutes. And if you want to make it ahead, you can prep the lasagne and put it in the freezer, then put it right into the Instant Pot® for an easy dinner.
