We LOVE our green masala, whether it’s used as a dip, a chutney or a marinade – coriander and chillies with other spices is King! In this recipe, I’m giving my Instant Pot a whirl by cooking chunks of beef in this glorious green blend.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can easily use a regular pressure cooker as well.
