Easy Shrimp and Green Lentil Pulao (Instant Pot)

I often look for one-pot recipes that tide me from dinner to the next days lunch. One evening when I returned late from lunch I cobbled up this home meal, made with quick cooking green lentils , shrimp and rice.


1/2 cup green french lentils
2 tablespoons oil
1 large red onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon ground coriander
2 pods green cardamom
1 stick of cinnamon
2 to 3 cloves
1 cup Basmati rice
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1.5 teaspoons salt
2 red skinned potatoes, quartered
1/2 cup green peas (I used frozen)
1/2 pound medium sized shrimp (about 15 to 20 shelled and de-veined)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1/2 fresh lime)
Chopped cilantro to garnish
