This is an adaptation of a few chicken curry recipes. This is a great meal to serve on a cold winter's day. Easy to prepare and very quick in the pressure cooker. Freezes well for once a month cooking.

Quick and delicious! The only change I made was to add some grated ginger and a small can of diced tomatoes.

Delicious! I've never made a curry so this was the first one I attempted in my electric pressure cooker and it turned out amazing! A real treat! Felt like I was at the authentic Indian restaurant down the road. Thanks very much for sharing this recipe.
