The Instant Pot has definitely become my preferred way of cooking a curry as all of the ingredients tend to come out wonderfully tender, with a delightfully creamy texture, and in much less time than conventional methods. Win!

Now on to that curry ...

Tips for making Potato & Lentil Curry in a Pressure Cooker:

  • I do not recommend replacing the red lentils with any other type of lentils. Red lentils are a large part of the delightfully creamy texture in this curry and other types of lentils would need a greater time adjustment to be successfully cooked.

  • In a pinch, cilantro can be replaced with parsley.

  • Not a fan of a touch of spicy? Omit or cut down on the red pepper flakes in this recipe.

  • Canned diced tomatoes can replace the crushed tomatoes OR 2 fresh tomatoes, chopped.

  • I’ve made this recipe with russet, gold and red potatoes — all result in a very similar dish.

  • Though it will not be as creamy or flavorful, the full fat coconut milk can be replace with any dairy or non-dairy milk of choice, in a pinch!

  • The apple cider vinegar can be replaced with lemon juice, or omitted altogether if you do not have either.

  • In true curry fashion, this lentil and potato dish only has a tendency to develop bolder, deeper, more complex flavors in time. Simply put: this makes an excellent leftovers dish or meal planning addition!

  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. Reheat on the stove top over medium-low heat until warmed throughout; or in an Instant Pot on saute mode (stirring frequently).

NOTE: I created and have only made this recipe with a 6 quart Instant Pot. While I have a received a lot of positive feedback on this recipe, some of those using 8 quart Instant Pots have encountered a ‘burn’ error message. However, they have told me that adding 1-2 cups of more liquid resolved the issue and resulted in a favorable outcome. So if you are using an 8 qt you might want to add a little more liquid from the get-go! As always, I would love to hear your feedback and experiences! xo.
