    I would wait till the last step to put the shrimp in. It was way overcooked, but other than that we enjoyed it. Rice came pur great

    Directions for cooking are confusing. Curry ended up like soup due to pressure cooking as directed. I recommend only saute setting for the curry/shrimp.

    I am wondering what size of IP she is using. Mine is only 3qt. Not sure be able to add in a trivet and then rice

    Well for one, why does the recipe say “add all above mentioned ingredients to marinate the shrimp for 5 min” and then have us add the ingredients separately later? That sort of crap is why i hate cooking. Be clear for God’s sake! I just jumbled everything together bc it was too late to do anything else.

    Made this recipe, and it taste good. The only problem is the shrimp way overcooked if you follow the step. I would suggest to add the shrimps last when you are thickening the sauce. Shrimps dont take long to cook.

    Aside from the confusing recipe, I used octopus, squid, shrimp and mussels (mixed seafood bag from the store), reduced the pressure cook time to 4 min (as others noted that the shrimp can’t survive the long cook time) and made the rice on the stove (did not have a bowl to go on the trivet).

    Turned out really good, definitely a keeper!
