How to Instant Pot It
Set Instant Pot to saute function.
Heat oil and add onion, ginger and garlic, and saute 2-3 minutes.
Add chicken, stir, and just give a quick sear, 2-3 minutes.
Add red curry paste, cook 1 minute.
Add coconut milk, chicken bouillon cube, fish sauce, brown. Stir to combine.
Add potatoes, carrots, cauliflower.
Pressure Cook breast meat on high pressure for 6 minutes (chicken thighs will need 9 minutes).
Manually quick release, open lid and set back to saute function. Simmer sauce down a bit to reduce it.
Add any quick-cooking snow peas, bell peppers, and pineapple and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until veggies are tender.
Add lime juice. Taste, adjust salt and heat (add more curry paste for more spicy).
Serve over the grain of choice (white rice, brown, rice, or quinoa) then top with fresh basil, a lime wedge and bean sprouts.
