Top 10 Instant Pot Recipes of 2017

As the year 2017 comes to an end, I want to take the time to thank my readers and wish you all a very happy new year. This has been a wonderful and exciting year for me, with starting this blog and sharing my love for cooking. I hope that you have made some memories cooking and sharing delicious food with your family and friends.

Here I am sharing the top 10 recipes you have loved on Piping Pot Curry. Not surprisingly, all are instant pot recipes 🙂

10. Kheer or Rice Pudding

This recipe is my favorite. Why? Because it is a game-changer when made in the instant pot! Just dump in all the ingredients, set to Porridge mode and come back to perfectly cooked kheer. Traditionally made kheer on the stovetop would have taken an hour or more of active time to prepare. Here is what one reader had to say about this kheer – “I made it today and it is so delicious! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. Quick Easy and 😋

9. Vegan Thai Green Curry with Tofu

This Thai Green Curry with Tofu and Vegetables, is a perfect vegan dish. So aromatic and creamy, and the best part, it can be ready in less than 20 minutes. Many readers have loved it and I am sure you will too!  A review from one of the readers – “Very tasty vegan recipe! Thanks for sharing. Also the video was awesome and hard to believe it was your first one“.

8. Chicken Saag / Chicken & Spinach Curry

I have been very impressed with the Saag made in the instant pot, as are many readers of Piping Pot Curry. Making Saag used to be a multiple step process along with multiple dishes getting dirty. With the instant pot, it is a one-pot dish which is as flavorful!

This is another one of those recipes that is a game changer in the instant pot. Just add all the ingredients and come back to a flavorful gravy, that can be used to make many dishes. It is very versatile, so you can make a variety of dishes with it. Here is a review from a reader who enjoyed this recipe – “I made this and it was DELICIOUS.

4. Punjabi Chole Masala / Chana Masala / Chickpeas Curry

Chole Masala is a signature North Indian dish that is enjoyed with bhatura, naan or rice. I love the convenience to make this complicated dish as a one-pot recipe in the instant pot. I am sure you will love it too!  Here is a great review from a follower, “Wonderful, Flavorful recipe. I have made it three times already and it is becoming a regular thing in my household!“.
