RECIPE: Candie’s Curry in a Hurry (Paleo! Instant Pot!)

Need a delicious Paleo curry that comes together in 15 minutes? Thanks to the Instant Pot, you now have all the time you need to enjoy a bowl of seconds.

There are few things I love more in this world than delicious flavor and things that excite the tastebuds.    In our area, there are so many restaurants that boast international flavors: Indian, Mexican, Italian, Chinese. I love cuisine with an exotic flair. And curries are amazing.

Unfortunately, with my family’s diagnosis of Celiac disease this past summer, eating out has become almost completely impossible. Between making food “Celiac-safe” and preventing cross-contamination, eating out is either a bland affair or not worth the risk and hassle.

When my good friend, Candie, told me I had to try her amazing Paleo Curry that tasted even better than my favorite local Indian restaurant — I was ecstatic. It had such rich depth, yet was gentle enough that my strong-flavor-avoiding kids literally licked their bowls clean. While her recipe called for simmering in the slow cooker for 6-8 hours during the day, I found that the Instant Pot nailed Candie’s Curry in a hurry. And thus, the name was born.

Overwhelmed by people talking about Instant Pot accessories? Our comprehensive list tells you what you really need AND how to use them.

Instant Pot Accessories and How To Use Them

Candie’s Curry in a Hurry

Gather your supplies. Personally, I like taking the shortcut of using dried minced onion to help speed up prep time.

Add all ingredients (except meat) to the Instant Pot bowl and stir to combine.

Add in the chicken (boneless breast or boneless thighs). Once you’ve checked your sealing ring, attached the lid, and closed the sealing valve, select MANUAL for 15 minutes.

Allow pressure to release naturally and enjoy with your favorite garnishes (rice, cauliflower rice, frozen peas, etc). I guarantee it’s bowl-lickin’-good!

Turn this dinner into an Instant Pot Freezer Meal. No need to thaw before cooking — cook straight from frozen! Get step-by-step instructions here.

  1. Hi! I want to make this recipe, but with rice cooked in with everything else at the same time so that it gets all the flavors infused right in. Do you know how much rice I would put in and how much extra water or chicken broth would be needed, if any? I’m thinking a cup of the Trader Joe’s easy-cook organic brown rice plus some liquid, but I don’t think it would need any additional cooking time.

    Thank you!

  2. Have you tried this with another mat besides chicken? Ever since bariatric surgery, my dh has an aversion to ask poultry.

      Thanks for asking, Rachel! I personally haven’t, but I would suspect that lamb or pork could sub quite nicely. If you give it a try, please let me know! I’m curious now… 🙂
