Mealthy Tip

Chutney is a sort of relish or jam that is often used to bring balance to a dish in Indian cuisine. Chutneys can vary from sweet and tart to spicy and hot. In this dish the cilantro and mint provide a cooling effect to counter the red chili powder in the chicken.

This is a classic tandoori chicken recipe, only made in a pressure cooker which drastically cuts the cooking time in half. I loved everything about this dish, from the aromatic garam masala and turmeric, to the well seasoned, juicy chicken. The yogurt helps all the ingredients stick and keep the chicken moist. Definitely a 5-star recipe.

This pressure cooker tandoori recipe was so good. It was also really quick and easy to make. Garam masala with ginger and garlic is always a winning combination. This goes great with rice.

Used chicken thighs and added extra cilantro to this dish. It went perfectly with basmati rice and a side of hummus and homemade naan bread for serving.

I made the mistake of cooking these with the skin on. Tried to seat them in the pot of my pressure cooker. Now I see why it said skin removed. Still, I made it work and the flavor was so good. Next time I will follow the ingredients exactly. Left out the cilantro chutney and just garnished with parsley.

Used chicken breasts cut into chunks. It was really flavorful! Greek yogurt works wonders and helps it stay juicy.
