By now, nearly everyone has heard of the Instant Pot, the multi-use programmable pressure cooker that has taken the home cooking world by storm and brought together a community of millions of online followers. With over 5 million Instant Pots sold—and numerous similar programmable cooking devices now joining the market—this time-saving cooking phenomenon is certainly here to stay. The Instant Pot lends itself perfectly to Indian recipes, making flavorful, nutritious Indian fare like dals, legumes and all manner of curries–-that typically take a long time to simmer--up to 70% faster than on the stove top.
