  • 1 Tsp Turmeric

  • 1 Tsp Cumin1/2 Tsp Cinnamon

  • 1 Tsp Chilli Powder

  • 2 Tsp Diamond Crystal Salt

  • Chicken cubed (I used two breasts) It’s important that you don’t finely chop up the chicken. You can just quarter a breast if you want. The pressure cooker will do the work for you.

  • Large knob butter (sub oil if dairy free)

  • 1 cup Passata

  • 2 Tsp lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup water (for pressure)
