LET'S GET STARTED
A perfect one-pot dish for those busy weekdays!
Set the Instant Pot in saute mode. Add the 3 tbsp of oil and after 30 to 45 seconds, when the oil is hot, add the chopped onion, garlic, green chili, and ginger. Saute until the onion turns soft and tender or for about 3 to 4 minutes.
Close the Instant Pot. Make sure the vent is in the sealing position. Select manual/pressure cook and set the time to 2-minutes at high-pressure mode. When the cooking is complete, wait for 10 minutes, then quickly release the remaining pressure. Carefully open the lid after releasing the pressure and mix the chakalaka.
Now add the cilantro and gently mix the chakalaka and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes in the saute mode. Check for seasoning and adjust at this stage. This simmering step is optional. But it helps the sauce to thicken a bit. Turn off the Instant Pot and serve it warm with rice or relish it as is.
