Instant Pot Banana Curry

Always excited for an opportunity to bust out the #InstantPot and definitely love opportunities for savory meals featuring bananas (I don't come across many!). This one relies heavily on spices so measure carefully.

What I changed: quite a bit. My foot is all messed up and I skipped my specialty shops. Definitely check out the original link if you want a more authentic take.


3 #bananas, peeled and cubed

1 onion chopped finely

1/2 tbsp lime juice

salt to taste

Ground Seasonings

1/2 tsp ground red pepper

6 to 7 peppercorns, ground up (I did 20 clicks on the pepper grinder)

2 tsp cumin

11/2 tbsp coconut grated

1 clove garlic, peeled and minced


11/2 tsp coconut oil

1/2 tsp mustard seeds

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

1/4 tsp turmeric powder

Dash on onion powder

Dash of garlic powder

To Serve

2 portions of rice

Fresh cilantro


Set your Instant Pot to sauté. Add the oil for tadka. When the oil becomes hot, add the mustard seeds, cumin, turmeric, onion powder, and garlic powder. Let the mustard seeds splutter.

Now add the chopped onions and sauté until they turn translucent. Add the chopped raw banana and sauté for a minute.

Now add the ground seasonings, lime juice, salt and mix well.

Add 1/4 cup water along the sides of the instant pot pan and cook on manual high for 3 minutes. Release the pressure immediately.

Serve with rice and top with fresh cilantro.
