Instant Pot Coconut Red Curry Noodle Soup
There are many ways you can go when looking for an Asian soup to make. There are crossover recipes, that combine elements from different cultures, and there are the specific recipes that are Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Indian, and so on.
This Instant Pot Coconut Red Curry Noodle Soup is a crossover for sure. I took some of my favorite ingredients and created a soup that tastes amazing!
There are several ingredients, and I tried to use only the ones you can find in a grocery store. Some of the optional ingredients may not be as readily available, but I have made this recipe without them and it still comes out very delicious.
Though there are several ingredients, it is not that difficult to make. I divided the recipe into steps to help guide you along. Enjoy!

Turn on the Sauté function. When display reads “Hot” add the oil.
Add the onion and carrots. Cook until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
Add the red curry paste, garlic, and ginger. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
Add broth, fish sauce, sweet chili sauce, soy sauce, salt, and bay leaf. Stir.
Let the broth mixture heat up, then add the chicken pieces.
Place the lid on the pot and set the Steam Release Knob to Sealing position.
Cancel the Sauté function.
Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button, or dial. Use the + or - button or dial to select 9 minutes (High pressure).
When cook cycle ends, let pot naturally release pressure for 10 minutes. Then do a controlled Quick Release of the remaining pressure by turning the knob to Venting (or push the button on the Ultra) in short bursts at first, to make sure no soup comes out with the steam.
When the pin in the lid drops. Open and stir the soup.
Remove the chicken pieces to a plate, using tongs, and set aside.
Turn the pot off, and turn on the Sauté feature again.
Add the red bell pepper, basil leaves, brown sugar, lime juice, coconut milk, and cilantro leaves. Stir.
Add the rice noodles and submerge them. Place a lid (the glass lid, or the IP lid, on Venting) on the pot and let it come to a simmer.
Meanwhile, shred the chicken.
When the noodles have softened, about 3-5 minutes, remove lid and add the shredded chicken back in. Stir well and serve.
Garnish as desired.
Pro Tip: First, prepare all of the produce and gather
everything you will need to make this soup. It makes
the process go smoothly, and you will have everything
you need at your fingertips! I do this whenever I make a
soup or recipe with several ingredients.
*How much curry paste you use depends on how spicy,
and which brand you use. I like Thai Kitchen for milder,
Mae Ploy for SPICY (Mae Ploy is very spicy, so use half or
less. You can add more later)!
