Instant Pot Red Thai Curry Soup

What you might not know about me is that for one night only I worked as a waitress in a Thai restaurant when I was 18 back in the year 2000.

The Thai restaurant was husband and wife owned and had been open about a year.

The lady had put herself through a quick culinary course and her new husband had paid for her to have her own Thai restaurant.

But she sucked at anything business and I was in this chaotic kitchen trying to help her. I worked for one night only and then left, realising that I couldn’t work for someone that was so unorganised.

But even though business was not her strong point, she was amazing at cooking Thai food and that night I got to watch her cook all the meals that went out in the restaurant.

The Thai food smelt amazing, looked amazing and I was in my foodie element.

From that moment on, my obsession with Thai food began.

Best Instant Pot Red Thai Curry

Red Thai curry has always been my favourite and it must be one of those one pot meals I cook all the time.

I started making it in the slow cooker many years ago, then the Dutch Oven and over the last 4 years in the instant pot pressure cooker.

Because it’s a frequent meal in the Milner house, you will always find the ingredients in our house.

Are always in the fridge. We will always have some coconut milk in the pantry too. Then it’s a case of grabbing what vegetables we have in and loading them up ready for an instant pot red Thai curry soup.

You can use any firm vegetable you have or just use lentils. I have made Thai curry with carrots, butternut squash, pumpkin, sweet potato and even asparagus.Easy Slow Cooker Butternut Squash

Instant Pot Vegetable Curry

Can I let you in on a little secret of when I was typing up this Thai curry soup recipe for you?

I couldn’t decide what to call it.

It was between instant pot vegetable curry and instant pot red Thai curry soup. You see it is one of those recipes that can be both. You can serve it before blending into a soup with rice like I have done below:

Or blend it like a soup and serve it over instant pot brown rice.

To me, this Thai red curry instant pot recipe is just something I make when I have yummy root vegetables in and want a veggie loaded quick dinner.

It is your choice whether you serve it as instant pot vegetable curry or instant pot curry soup. I will let you decide!

Instant Pot Thai Red Lentil Soup

You will also notice that we use red lentils in this curry soup. It makes the soup more filling and keeps you full for longer.

It is also fantastic for thickening the soup if you are using vegetables that carry too much water.
