How to make Strawberry Chutney in Instant Pot?

  • Add the strawberries to the Instant Pot ( do not switch it on as yet) , add sugar & the lemon juice. Give everything a good mix and allow it to sit for 30 mins. 
  • After 30 mins you'll notice that the strawberries will release lots of juice. It's time to switch on the Instant Pot.
  • Close the lid of the IP & press the PRESSURE COOK button. Set it on HIGH for 1 min.
  • After 1 min wait for NPR (natural pressure release) for 15 mins. Than, release the rest of the pressure & open the lid of the IP.
  • After opening the pot you'll notice a watery strawberry concoction. Now, CANCEL the PRESSURE COOK mode & than press the SAUTE & set it on NORMAL. 
  • Mash the cooked strawberries with a potato masher. If you prefer chunky pieces of berries in your chutney reduce the mashing time & if you prefer a smoother chutney mash more until the berries break down.
  • Add the red chili flakes, the salt, vinegar, roasted cumin seed powder & the grated ginger. Give everything a very good mix. Simmer the Strawberry chutney until the sauce thickens. It should take you about 15 mins to achieve the jam like consistency.
  • Turn off the IP and allow the Strawberry Chutney to cool down completely. In the meantime sterilize the canning jars in boiling water for 15-20 mins. Dry them completely and store the chutney.
