About this Recipe
Chicken curry, also known as curry chicken, is a dish from the Indian subcontinent. It is widespread in the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, the United Kingdom, and the Caribbean. A typical Indian subcontinent curry consists of chicken stewed in an onion-and- tomato-based sauce flavoured with ginger, garlic, tomato puree,
chilli peppers, and a variety of spices, which may include turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, and cardamom. Outside of South Asia, chicken curry is frequently made with curry powder, a pre-made spice mixture.
Pressure cooking is the process of cooking food in a sealed vessel known as a pressure cooker using high pressure steam and water or a water-based cooking liquid. High pressure prevents boiling and produces higher cooking temperatures, which cook food much faster.
