You'd not want to do that. White rice takes 3.5 mins to cook in the instant pot! Just cook it off when finished curry

3.5 min from the time you put rice and water? Or from the time it builds up the pressure?
And is it basmati rice?

Seriously tempted by this, I tend to use a slow cooker every week day during the winter. Can I just check I'm reading it right, this is a slow cooker too, but does quick stuff using pressure cooker? Would this be a good size for 2 adults 2 kids?

I made chicken and chickpeas curry.
Took 10 min once pressure started.
Was definitely quick!! And fried onions in the same pot.

Yogurt from it is class.

White rice too, 3 mins high pressure and 20 natural release. Equal quantity of rice and water.

Octopus took like 5 mins on high.

I highly recommend.

Are these not the same (or similar) as the King Pressure Pro 5 litre which are available in did for €69.99? It’s also a slow cooker/pressure cooker. Might be an option for some

To ask a stupid question, 3 on high and 23 release - is this a 23 minute time from putting it into the pot?

Or does it need time to build up as well?

Depending on the quantity of water, it will take 3-6 min to build up the pressure.
To make things quicker, I cook longer on high heat and release the steam manually.

So I cooked chicken boneless cubes yesterday, 1 kg.
Took some 3 min to build up pressure, then went on high pressure for 7 min. Then I released steam manually.
So total time 10 min from the time I put in chicken and close the lid.

Ofcourse I did saute onions, spices, etc in the beginning which took additional 5 min.
