My very first vegan Prompt Pot recipe is right here! I lastly took the plunge and bought an Instant Pot after being on the fence about whether or not I needed a brand new equipment to take up actual property on my counter (it would need to struggle for area subsequent to the youngsters’ piles of art work, in spite of everything). Thanks once more for the Ask Angela weigh-in again in February. I’m often suspicious of recent tendencies and like to attend a great whereas earlier than I make the leap, however I’m loooving it up to now. I had completely underestimated how good it’s to place the lid on a recipe and stroll away! However this similar handy characteristic additionally makes it difficult to develop recipes as a result of you may have ONE SHOT to get the cook dinner time/strain right. No huge deal. This curry took over 10 trials to get good…I modified up the flavours, cook dinner time (6 minutes, 5 minutes, 1 minute, Four minutes…ahh!), liquids-to-solids ratios…you title it, I tweaked it! Nicole and I really like a problem, although, so it’s been enjoyable figuring it out and I do assume we’ll get faster as we go.
I had a stovetop strain cooker again within the day and that factor used to scare the bejesus out of me with all of its rattling and clanking round. So the primary two occasions I cooked with my new Prompt Pot, I handed Eric a picket spoon and instructed him to launch the steam whereas I hid. I’m not proud, however hey, at the least I’m now doing it myself! It’s actually not that dangerous in any respect, and it feels a lot safer than my previous stovetop strain cooker ever did.
Don’t fear should you don’t have an Prompt Pot, although! I bought yo’ again. We’ve examined this curry on the stovetop as effectively as a result of I would like everybody to have the ability to make these simple recipes at house! I haven’t had an opportunity to check this curry in a sluggish cooker but, but when any of you do, may you please go away a remark and tell us the way it goes? The fantastic thing about this curry is that you simply actually throw every part (besides the greens) right into a pot, stir it, and cook dinner. It couldn’t be simpler! In fact, I wouldn’t name this an genuine Thai curry by any means, nevertheless it’s scrumptious and comes collectively shortly on these busy weeknights.
Anyway, you probably have any questions on this recipe or the Prompt Pot normally, please fireplace away under! If I can’t reply your query, perhaps another person will help by chiming in with their expertise.
