Instant Pot Quick and Easy Shrimp Curry
Vibrant and mouth-watering Shrimp Curry with tender-sweet shrimp that is lightly spiced with aromatic whole spices and has tropical flavors from coconut milk.
Put the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 hours or in the freezer for 5 minutes to separate the cream from water, then open the can and scoop off the cream from the top. Reserve both cream and water.
Set the Instant Pot to Sauté mode and heat oil. Add onion, cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves and sauté for 2 minutes.
Add salt, red chili powder, turmeric, ginger, garlic. Press the Cancel button to turn off the Instant Pot. Mix well.
Stir in ¼ cup of the reserved coconut water, tomato puree, and shrimp.
Close the Instant Pot with steam release handle to sealing. Pressure Cook/Manual(Low) for 2 minutes followed by quick release.
Stir in reserved coconut cream and garnish with cilantro. Transfer the shrimp to a serving bowl or take the stainless steel pot out of the Instant Pot housing and place it on a hot plate to avoid overcooking. Enjoy hot.
- Use tail-on, peeled and deveined jumbo or extra-large frozen shrimp
- If using small to medium shrimp reduce the cook time to zero or 1 minute
- Pick out and discard the whole spices when eating
