Instant Pot Kerala Ground Meat Coconut Curry

  • Cuisine: Indian

Description

This Keralite coconut stew is made with meat, potatoes and carrots. I make this often because I almost always have ground meat in my fridge, making this an easy dish to throw together at the last minute. The coconut milk mellows out the flavor, making this a mild curry.


Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 Serrano pepper or green chili, minced
  • 20 curry leaves
  • 3 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger

Spices

  • 2 teaspoons meat masala
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric

 

  • 1 pound ground beef or ground meat of choice
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 1 potato, chopped
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 (13.5 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk

Instructions

  1. Press the sauté button, add the coconut oil. Once it melts, add the mustard seeds and when they begin to pop, add the onion, Serrano pepper and curry leaves. Stir-fry for 6-7 minutes, or until the onions begin to brown.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Add the spices, stir, then add the ground meat and cook until it is mostly browned.
  3. Add the carrots, potatoes and ¼ cup water.
  4. Secure the lid, close the pressure valve and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.
  5. Open the valve to quick release any remaining pressure.
  6. Stir in the coconut milk.
