What Started it all:
Ham, Potato, mayonnaise, pressure cooker

This recipe combines the heartiness of ham and potatoes with a creamy mayonnaise twist, all cooked to perfection in a pressure cooker. Perfect for a quick and satisfying meal for four people.


  • 400g ham, cubed
  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, grated
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh coriander, chopped (for garnish)


  1. Peel and dice your potatoes, cube the ham, and finely chop the onion. Mince the garlic and grate the ginger.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in the pressure cooker over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and let them sputter.
  3. Throw in the chopped onions, garlic, and ginger. Sauté until the onions are golden brown.
  4. Add the curry powder, turmeric, and garam masala to the pot. Stir well to coat the onions in the spices.
  5. Add the cubed ham to the pot and stir to combine with the spices. Cook for about 5 minutes, letting the ham absorb all those flavors.
  6. Add the diced potatoes to the pot. Stir them well to ensure they're coated in the spice mixture.
  7. Pour in the cup of water. Stir well, making sure nothing is sticking to the bottom.
  8. Close the lid of the pressure cooker and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.
  9. Carefully release the pressure according to your pressure cooker's instructions.
  10. Once the pressure is released, open the lid and stir in the cup of mayonnaise. Mix well until it's fully incorporated and creamy.
  11. Taste and add salt as needed. Garnish with fresh chopped coriander.

There you have it, a quick and hearty meal with a creamy twist. Perfect for a busy weeknight or when you need something comforting. Don't mess it up, get it right the first time!
