  2. Sauté the Chicken:

    • Add the diced chicken breast to the pressure cooker and season with salt and pepper.

      • Cook at high pressure for about 10-12 minutes (adjust based on your pressure cooker's settings and the size of the chicken pieces).
      • Allow the pressure to release naturally or use the quick release method as per your pressure cooker's guidelines.
  6. Serve:

    • Once the pressure has released and it's safe to open the cooker, carefully remove the lid.
    • Stir the cooked casserole mixture gently.
    • Taste and adjust seasoning if needed with more salt or pepper.
    • Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves if desired.

  8. Instructions (After Cooking):
  9. Shred the Chicken:
  10. Once the pressure has been released from the cooker and it's safe to open, use a fork or two forks to shred the cooked chicken directly in the pressure cooker.
  11. Pull the chicken apart into smaller pieces so that it mixes well with the vegetables and sauce.
  12. Mix Thoroughly:
  13. Stir the shredded chicken into the vegetable and Madras sauce mixture thoroughly.
  14. This step helps to distribute the shredded chicken evenly throughout the casserole.
  15. Adjust Consistency (Optional):
  16. If the casserole is too thick for your liking, you can add a little water or chicken broth to adjust the consistency. Stir well to combine.
  17. Simmer (Optional):
  18. If desired, you can simmer the casserole mixture for a few more minutes on low heat to allow the flavors to meld together.
  19. Serve and Enjoy:
  20. Once everything is well mixed and heated through, serve the chicken and vegetable Madras casserole hot.
  21. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves if desired.
  22. Additional Tips:
  23. Be gentle when shredding the chicken to avoid breaking it into very small pieces.
  24. Taste the casserole after mixing to ensure the seasoning is to your liking. Add more salt or pepper if needed.
  25. Adjust the cooking time and pressure release based on the specific instructions of your pressure cooker model.
