https://slowcookingperfected.com/slo...-madras-curry/

https://www.superhealthykids.com/rec...chicken-curry/ not possible to mess this one up and I always dice up a couple of potatoes very small and you can add as much veg as you like, good for the kids yet I'm
sure there's plenty more out there as nice saying that

got this off fb, if you like stronganoff you won't ever appreciate this dish from anywhere else...it's that good
can't link it as it's been years so i've added a pic
not cooked it in a while as my young un isn't a fan, I usually cook it
on medium for 2/3 hours (stir fry beef in aldi works well..2hrs for that)

It's just a good pro-biotic yogurt that goes down well with everyone. I think Kefir might be somewhat different, with maybe even more health benefits? I've made Kefir in the past, but it's a bit sour and I could never keep up with the amount that was exponential in quantity. Kombucha is another option, though no IP needed either.

I think that one has no yogurt feature, that is what made me go for the instant pot. Be sure to stir the milk as it can burn at the bottom. Cans of evaporated milk can be used for thicker yogurt (not condensed milk, evaportaed), it is also preheated so no need for the inital boil.

There is now a instantpot that goes to 15psi, for faster cooking and canning.

There is also a ninja brand, the blender people, which is a combined airfryer, pressure cooker and dehydrator.

I got it locally in a fabric shop but it's also available on Amazon or anywhere that sells jam making stuff, for example. You can line a colander with it or make/buy a muslin bag.

If you're stuck, a good clean sterilised pillowcase does the job too. I've heard some people even use the leg of a new pair of tights too

Incidentally, you don't HAVE to strain the yogurt at all - it's fine just as yogurt once chilled. I love the thick Greek stuff though, so that's what we have.

This would be great thread. I have had my Instant Pot for just over a year and use it a couple of times a week. It's one of the best bits of kit I have.
I did use mine for yoghurt a while back, and yes, it's very nice. But I realised you can now get some very good commercial ones without all the fuss. Also, once you have your yoghurt working away in the pot, you can't use it for anything else and it does take some time, unless you have a second pot.
I realised when I started using the Instant Pot, there are lots of things you CAN do it it, but that doesn't mean you SHOULD. The suggestion about boiled eggs being one

I agree with that mostly - I'm on a Facebook page (purely for the recipes and tips) and the number of people who ask to have recipes converted for things that just aren't worth it is phenomenal (eg instant cake mixes!)

However, in relation to the eggs, I always do my hard-boiled eggs in the IP. The shells literally fall off, as opposed to picking them off with half the white attached.

And I have two pots now, though I always make my yogurt at night ....

I think you are right RoYoBo, having two pots is the way to go but I haven’t got around to buying another one yet. A useful item i do have is a bowl that will fit in well for pot-in-pot cooking. I do my steel cut oats in the IP, get it all ready the night before and it’s done by the time I’m downstairs. It wouldn’t work as well directly in the main pot.

Any recommendations on accessory packs?

From reading online the trivet that comes isn't tall enough for cooking something on top of pasta for example

I have a number of accessories that I use regularly. Amazon has a great collection of things - some cheaper than others. I have a stainless steel pot insert that is actually a dog's dish! Never used as such, though

See here for possibilities and alternatives.

I am assuming the yogurt ye are talking about is plain yogurt with no fruit.
Has anyone ever added those frozen berry mixes to their yogurt.

You can add whatever flavourings or fruit you like after the yogurt is made. Doing it beforehand disrupts the culturing process. My favourite at the moment is lemon curd and chocolate shavings

Made this today and the pot was licked clean. Nothing super out of the ordinary ingredients wise, I added more veg like mushrooms and parsnips etc. Really nice
