Ultrapot

A new cooking opportunity!

A couple of years ago we bought one of these newfangled multi-function cooking pots – specifically, a Müeller Ultra Pot. But it was just a couple of months ago that I realized the incredible potential of this device, when I discovered this new cookbook from Urvashi Pitre, Indian Instant Pot. As many of you know, I love Indian food and have refined my ability to make a very small number of Indian dishes… but with this cookbook, and this cook pot, I could do a lot more. Read on to see what I’ve tried so far!

Although the product called Instant Pot© has been very trendy in the past few years, and this cookbook is specifically tailored to that product, we chose a higher-quality version from Müeller, and have been quite satisfied.

Using this pot and this cookbook I have thus far made the dishes pictured below, as well as Dal Makhani (no photo). All of them have been good to excellent, and I look forward to trying many more to come!
