Chicken Curry in a Pressure Cooker

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 35 mins

My pressure cooker "uses" 1 cup of liquid every 15 minutes. Therefore this recipe results in about 2 cups of thickened sauce. Add more water for more sauce, but remember that it will be thinner and perhaps the seasoning will need to be adjusted. The spice paste and seasoning is done without pressure, but the chicken is cooked under high pressure.
