looks great! this is hilarious though, I literally bought ingredients this weekend to make a vegetarian butter chicken (chickenless obviously) curry in the instant pot as well. though a different recipe


What recipe did you use? I looked at a few and the Facebook groups I'm in referred me to Vegan Richa.  I looked through some of her other stuff and I'm probably going to be trying a few of her recipes.

I have been enjoying cooking with the Instant Pot.  I've made a couple curries in there, cooked batches of beans, and tonight I'll try collards and black eyed peas.  Last night I tried to make a vegan version of butter chicken curry.  My neighbor gave me a bag of tomatoes from his garden so I needed something to use them all.  I bought soy curls to make it which are kind of like TVP but more dense and chewier.  It was pretty great, and I took a picture of the leftovers I ate for lunch today (I didn't have enough rice so there is actually mung bean sprouts under the curry).  This is the recipe, https://www.veganric...er-chicken.html you can obviously make it however hot you want based on the peppers you use.  I followed the recipe pretty closely because I'm still not totally comfortable with the pressure cooking.  At the end I added some almond butter to make it creamier.

I've used it and made some things slightly smokey, you have to contain the smoke and seal it for a bit to really get any effect.  I usually hit whatever I'm trying to smoke in a container a few times. But it isn't a wonder device, I wouldn't have bought it myself but it was a gift. I used a few times when I got it but now it just sits on a shelf. 




I did smoke wormwood out of it once though for funzies.

That contraption was given to me as a gift.  I used it a couple times but it doesn't really do much but make the dish smell smokey and trick you into thinking you're eating smoked food. Its like the LaCroix of the food world.

Don't close up the lid! Its gotta breathe! I used to make a lot of kombucha and jun tea.  When I'd do the 2nd ferment I'd put a little jam in the bottles.  You could take a hot pepper jam and use it in the 2nd ferment for a spicy booch.  I will warn though that when I drank spicy booch my lips were burning for hours.
