The 100 Best Curries for your Instant Pot, my first ever international cookbook, is here! Tried and tested Indian curry recipes you can make in a fraction of the time using an instant pot.
I finally did it! My very own cookbook is here. How did it all happen? If you are curious about the back story, you should not miss out on all the juicy details.
Enough about me; let’s talk about the cookbook.
The title of my cookbook is – The 100 BEST Curries for your Instant Pot.
Why only curry? As an Indian food lover, I always felt curry is one dish highly misrepresented on the World food map. So this cookbook is my humble initiative to make cookbook readers understand that it is not that difficult to make a wholesome, delicious curry at home without getting intimidated by the list of ingredients.
What’s inside the cookbook?
100 Indian Curry Recipes, all made with the convenience of the Instant Pot.
A cookbook with recipes that will please both vegetarians and meat lovers. And don’t worry, there is something for my vegan friends as well!
An honest introduction about curry’s journey, my love for it, and how an instant pot finds its way into my Indian kitchen. And, of course, everything in between is useful you need to know for making a gratifying bowl of curry.
Each of the 100 recipes is tested by me over and over again. And comes with a precise ingredients list and expert notes. We have tried our best to take out the guesswork from the equation.
100+ colorful, vibrant photographs of curries, including the cookbook cover, are curated by truly yours. Except for the author images, we hired a team of professional photographers (as my husband wasn’t up for the job). Plus, I wanted to look neat and decent professional.
The curry recipes in the cookbook are divided into eight chapters.
- Restaurant Style Favorites
- A Bag of Beans
- Veg Curry In A Hurry
- Chicken From My Kitchen
- For Meat Lovers
- Fresh From The Sea
- Fusion Flavors

But in my cookbook, you will find how to cook these restaurant-style Indian dishes in an instant pot without compromising on the taste.
Beans, Lentils, and Plenty Of Vegetarian Recipes: I am somebody who loves dal, sabji, curry, and everything vegetarian. Hence, I tried my best to include plenty of vegetarian curry recipes in my first cookbook. From Punjabi Rajma Masala to Pineapple Curry, Kootu, and Vegetable Chana Curry, there are 30+ vegetarian curry recipes.
Chicken From My Kitchen (Page 101): I have dedicated a whole chapter to the chicken curry recipes. From robust Chicken Chettinad Curry and refreshing Green Chicken Curry to Punjabi Murgh Chole, Malabar Chicken Curry, and Mughlai Murgh Shah Jahani, there are plenty of chicken curry recipes to get you excited.
One Pot Curry Meals (Page 203): We all need time-saving, comforting, minimal cleanup, and maximum flavor one-pot meals in our busy lives. Keeping that in mind, I decided to dedicate a whole chapter to one-pot curry meals. There are recipes for Haleem, various khichdi, Bisi Belle Bhath, Bunny Chow, and much more.

New authors like me thrive on your reviews and feedback. I hope to hear tons of them from you all!
Hi! I just checked out your book as an ebook from the library to preview before purchase and I noticed a number of the recipes called Lamb this or Chicken that have goat (usually 9 ounces bone in) listed on the ingredient list. Is it ok to assume the ingredient should really be 9 ounces bone in chicken/lamp/etc?
Examples Include the recipe for Royal Golden Lamb Curry and Parsi-Style Chicken and apricot curry. (There are others, but you get the idea!)
Hina Gujral says
All the ingredients including meats are precisely measured to take the guesswork out of the equation. I didn’t get your question but hope this assures you that the measurements are correct. Kindly let me know if you have any further queries.
Sorry, I should be more clear. Both the lamb curry and Parsi chicken call for 9 ounces GOAT meat. No other meat is listed.
Hina Gujral says
I got your point now. So you can make these dishes with lamb, chicken, or goat meat, especially goat and lamb recipes as the cooking time for both is exactly the same in an instant pot. When it comes to 9 ounces, yes that’s the correct quantity of meat.
