Pressure Cooker Instructions

Lightly coat inside of a 4- to 6-qt. multifunction electric or stove-top pressure cooker. Heat cooker to medium-high (for electric cooker, use saute setting). Cook half the chicken 6 minutes or until browned on both sides; remove from pot. Repeat with remaining chicken. Drain off fat. Place potatoes, onion, ginger, and garlic in cooker. Top with chicken. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour broth and tomato sauce over all. Lock lid in place.

Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 12 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 12 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, let stand 15 minutes to release pressure naturally. Release any remaining pressure. Open lid carefully. Stir peas, yogurt, and garam masala into chicken mixture in cooker. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes.

Is was an 'ok' dish. I make numerous Indian and middle eastern dishes, but this one just didn't really do it. I found it to be a bit bland. Salt helped a little, but not enough to make this a keeper recipe.

I actually doubled the broth and tomato sauce. It turned out perfectly. I will definitely make this again.

How does this work out not using the crock pot?

Easy to prepare and makes a tasty stew. Rather a lot of liquid once it is cooked but serve it with some crusty bread to soak up the gravy.
