Thai Red Curry in 30 min- Instant Pot Version

“During college, my husband (bf at the time) and I frequently visited our all time favorite Thai restarant that was located right outside of our college campus. We went there after finishing every major exam. Most of our dinner dates also involved Thai food. It’s our comfort food and we are never ever tired of it. I was pleasantly surprised by how authentic this recipe tasted. Do give it a try and let me know how it turns out if you make it”.
