50+ Instant Pot Indian Food Recipes


It’s no secret – I LOVE Indian food. I also love my Instant Pot because it makes it so much easier to cook my favorite cuisine!!

Indian Instant Pot Recipes

Ever since I bought my Instant Pot, I have been cooking Indian food daily. It’s so much faster than cooking Indian food on the stovetop. I have A LOT of Instant Pot Indian recipes on my blog and I’m sharing a lot of those recipes here in this post.

I’m always creating more recipes though so be sure to check out my Recipe Index for ALL of my Instant Pot Indian Recipes (you can find desserts there too – I didn’t include those in this list)! You can also check out my cookbook, Indian Food Under Pressure for even more recipes!
