Chicken Curry (Kari Ayam)

This will be our first Instant Pot recipe 😀

For our premier Instant Pot Dish, I will be sharing a super good chicken curry recipe (I love everything curry, so this dish is my favorite also!). I am hungry again just looking at the pictures on my screen and typing this recipe ha-ha.

I love cooking with my Instant Pot because I am generally a lazy cook, I do not really like standing near the store, stirring, waiting to stir, etc. So having Instant Pot is good for me. Yes, you can do it with slow-cooker too, but as the name say it, SLOW cooking, makes me too hungry waiting hahaha

Take it from me, if you don’t have an Instant Pot, you definitely need one 😀 …or not, am just a lazy cook 😀
