Oil – 5 to 6 tablespoons
-Add ginger ,garlic, green chili to your blender jar and make a fine paste
– Set your IP to saute mode
-Once it turns hot, add oil
-Add the onions , add a pinch of salt
-saute till onions soften but do not brown up too much

-Add chicken pieces and stir till the chicken turn pale brown
-Add the tomatoes, paprika, red chili powder, turmeric powder and salt
-Stir till all the tomatoes get soft and mixes with the chicken and most of the liquid dries up.
-Add the sugar, then add potatoes and stir

-Switch off the saute mode
-Switch on poultry function. I like my chicken to be very soft, hence chose poultry function. If you do not want your chicken to fall off the bones, then choose manual function and press adjust and set time for 12 minutes only.
-Turn vent to sealing position
-Once done switch off IP and release pressure naturally
-Enjoy with rice or roti.
