Easy and tasty curry taco with curried jackfruits cooked perfectly in the instant pot and spiced with Maya Kaimal’s Madras Curry Sauce. Sounds interesting? Here is my Vegan curried jackfruit taco recipe.

Instant Pot Curry Taco

Disclosure: I have received a box-full of Maya Kaimal curry sauces and packaged Everyday Dal to try and review. All the opinions about these products are purely mine. I was not compensated for my time.

I came across the brand Maya Kaimal Foods a few days ago. My local farmers market has a Vindaloo curry sauce, which certainly grabbed my attention.

Maya Kaimal sauces

Vindaloo, the fiery hot Goan curry, is one of the richest and hottest curry sauces available. Maya Kaimal’s Vindaloo curry sauce made me fall in love with it. Just add your favorite protein or veggies, and in less than 10-minutes, your Vindaloo curry is ready. Yes, a perfect restaurant-style dinner is served without struggling in the kitchen.

Maya Kaimal Products

The Maya Kaimal team was generous enough to send me a whole bunch of their tasty curry sauces and ready-to-eat packaged food. The package included Madras, Jalfrezi and Tikka masala curry sauce, Surekha rice, and an Everyday Dal. I love the way each of the items was packed for damage-free shipping. Maya’s curry sauces are in individual glass bottles. You can store the unused curry sauces in the refrigerator after opening the bottles. These shelf-stable sauces are perfect to spice up your bland meal with some spicy Indian touch.

Back to my curry taco: these are my favorite way to make an easy meal when I literally don’t want to cook. Honestly, this is “THAT EASY.” Instant pot certainly makes things even easier and quicker.

You can either dump, push, and start or cook your jackfruit in the pot in pot method and then use the sauté button to dry the water up. Both methods are super easy and give an equally satisfying result.

Yes, you can substitute it with fresh or frozen ones. But make sure to find some young ones not those yellow, ripe ones!
