  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • ONE cup coconut milk

  2. Stir in the curry powder, ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, and chili powder. Cook for another minute to toast the spices.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes and cook for a few minutes until they soften.
  4. Cancel the sauté mode. Add the cubed potatoes, chopped bell peppers, chopped carrots, and drained chickpeas to the Instant Pot.
  5. Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable broth. Stir to combine all the ingredients.

  1. Close the Instant Pot lid and set it to the “Pressure Cook” or “Manual” mode. Cook on high pressure for about 8 minutes.
  2. Once the cooking time is complete, allow for a natural pressure release for 5 minutes before carefully performing a quick release.
  3. Open the Instant Pot lid and stir the curry. If the consistency is too thick, you can add more vegetable broth or water to reach your desired thickness.
  4. Season the curry with salt, pepper, and lime juice. Taste and adjust the seasonings if necessary.
  5. Serve the Vegan Instant Pot Potato Curry hot, garnished with fresh cilantro leaves. This curry pairs perfectly with rice, quinoa, or your favorite bread.
