  • 1 tbsp Avocado Oil or Ghee Avocado oil if DF
  • 1 tbsp Ginger Minced
  • 4 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1 Bell pepper Chopped
  • ½ cup Carrot Chopped
  • ¼ cup Shallot chopped
  • 1 tsp Garam masala
  • ½ tsp Mustard seed
  • 1 tsp Coriander
  • 1 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 Cardamom pod
  • ¼ tsp Red pepper flakes omit if you don’t want it to be spicy
  • ½ cup Tomatoes canned
  • 1 cup Coconut milk unsweetened
  • ¼ cup Water
  • ¼ tsp Salt more to taste
  • 1 lb Pork Chops Cubed (trim fat and cut off bone, if bone-in pork chops)


  • Heat the oil in the Instant Pot on Saute mode. Add the mustard seeds and cook until they begin to pop (takes about 3 minutes) then add the rest of the spices except for the cardamom pod and the bay leaf. Cook the spices for about 1 minute or until fragrant.
  • Add the shallots, ginger, and garlic to the pot and cook for another minute, stirring continually. (They’ll burn if you’re not careful)
  • Add the pork and cook it thoroughly.
  • Add the peppers and carrot and cook for a little bit.
  • Add the tomatoes, coconut milk, cardamom pod, and bay leaf. Add 1/4 c water to this.
  • Close the Instant Pot and turn it onto soup mode for 4 minutes. (Total to get to pressure and release was about 15 minutes.)
  • Remove the bay leaf and cardamom pod (if you can find it), otherwise warn everyone not to eat it.
  • If you want the sauce to be thick, you can turn the Instant Pot to saute mode and reduce the curry. Otherwise, it’s time to serve it.
  • Serve over cauliflower rice or low-carb naan bread (suggestions in post)


-Be careful using turmeric, it will stain! I avoid wearing white on days I cook with turmeric.
-You could add additional low carb vegetables like mushrooms, cauliflower, broccoli, okra, zucchini etc.
If you don't eat pork, you can use a different meat like chicken. The same rules apply.
