Sure, you can buy the ready one, but imagine offering your guests a great curry chicken and casually mentioning the curry is a homemade curry powder! Also, imagine experimenting with quantities and flavors… I will, for sure!
Tangy, spicy and sweet a chutney can be made in the pressure cooker in just minutes. I've pressure cooked marmalade and hot sauce - so when mangoes magically appeared at the local store I jumped at the chance to make my own chutney.
A pressure cooker extracts the color and flavor from hot peppers in one minute at high pressure. The result is bold, vivid red and the flavor is amazingly bright with lots of heat and even a hint of "pepper" - not old and faded like Tabasco.
