You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

2 tbsp olive oil
2 whole chicken cleaned and cut in 8 pieces (16 pieces total)
1 big onions chopped finely
2 tbsp fresh ginger and garlic
1 big cinnamon stick
3 tbsp chickpea flour
2.5 cups water (1/2 cup used to mix with the chickpea flour for the slurry) and (2 cups for the gravy)
3 tbsp paprika
1 tbsp Kashmiri red chili pepper
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tsp turmeric
1 tbsp coriander powder
salt to taste
3 tbsp thick yogurt
dry roasted spices 👇🏼
1 tbsp fennel seeds
1 tbsp cumin
1/2 tsp black peppercorn
3 dried red chili peppers that are dried (add more to add more heat)
fresh coriander (garnish optional)
slivered ginger (garnish optional)
First dry roast the fennel, cumin, black peppercorn and the red chili peppers until toasty, blend it and keep it aside. Set the instant pot on sauté mode, add the oil in it and let it come to temperature, add the onions and let it sauté until light brown, next add the fresh ginger and garlic and stir well, next add the cinnamon stick, yogurt, roasted masala powder, garam masala, turmeric, coriander powder, paprika and the Kashmiri red chili pepper as well as the salt, mix all these ingredients very well for about a minute, this insures that the spices have fried up really well with the other ingredients. Finally add the chicken in there and give it one more mix making sure all the ingredients have incorporated really well. Add the 2 cups of water and mix well, cover the instant pot and put it on poultry at 10 minutes cooking time with a slow release of 15 minutes. While the nihari is cooking mix the 1/2 cup of water with the chickpea flour and keep it aside. Once you have slow released the instant pot do a fast taste test and adjust the seasoning according to your pallet. Next add the chickpea slurry and let it come to a boil once until the curry has thickened. Top with fresh coriander and slivered ginger.
