Top Tips for making Instant Pot Chickpea Curry with Pumpkin and Sweet Potatoes

  1. Good Pumpkin

    Be certain to use a pumpkin puree without any added ingredients — just straight pumpkin! I love the pumpkin puree from Thrive Market.

  2. Choose Your Acid

    If you do not have lemon juice handy, lime juice or apple cider vinegar are both suitable replacements!

  3. A Touch of Sweet

    I find coconut sugar to add the perfect balance of sweetness, but it can be omitted if need be, or any granulated or liquid sweetener of choice can be used in its place. For a sugar-free version, I love this sugar-free sweetener.

  4. Store It

    This delicious curry keeps well in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to one week. To re-heat simply place in the Instant Pot on saute mode and stir until warmed throughout or over the stovetop on medium heat.

Common Recipe Questions – Instant Pot Curry

  1. Can I use regular potatoes instead of sweet?

    Yes! No further adjustments necessary.

  2. I don’t like cilantro. Can I use something else?

    Yes! I highly recommend a mix of fresh parsley and fresh mint as a replacement.

  3. What kind of Instant Pot do you make this in?

    I use an Instant Pot Duo Plus 60, and I love it! I’ve never once encountered a burn error message or anything else troublesome with it!

    Kristen~ Making this weekend! I have all the ingredients and can’t wait to try it. I love making IP meals with these ‘fall’ ingredients + have made very similar with various squashes + sweet taters.. Will enjoy it with the pumpkin puree, for sure! Thanks!

    In love with curry and recipes like this have been on repeat for months! I’ve done sweet potato, pumpkin, and butternut squash but never thought to pair pumpkin and sweet potatoes or use pumpkin puree. Trying this next time!
