Instant Pot Asian Pressure Cooking

by Patricia Tanumihardja



In this cookbook, Asian-American food expert Pat Tanumihardja shows you how to buy fresh ingredients, condiments and spices from your local supermarket, farmers market or health food store on a budget, then how to use them to prepare delicious and flavorful Asian dishes using an Instant Pot.

To round off the menu, Tanumihardja even presents a handful of popular Asian desserts and snacks. Sticky rice with mango or Filipino caramel flan? As the author reveals, everything is possible in your Instant Pot, and this cookbook shows you how to do it!(Tuttle, Sept 1, 2020, Pbk, 128 pp)
