Instant Pot Molokhia is a popular Egyptian dish made with Molokhia leaves, which are also known as jute leaves or Jew’s mallow. The leaves are finely chopped and cooked with chicken or meat broth, garlic, and coriander. The dish is traditionally served over rice, with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and some crispy fried onions on top.

To make Instant Pot Molokhia, you’ll start by sautéing garlic and coriander in the Instant Pot until fragrant. Then you’ll add in the finely chopped Molokhia leaves and chicken or meat broth. After that, you’ll pressure cook the mixture for a few minutes until the leaves have cooked down and become tender. Finally, you’ll season the dish with salt, pepper, and lemon juice to taste.

The dish is often served with rice, but it can also be enjoyed with pita bread or other types of flatbread. Some people like to add additional toppings or garnishes, such as crispy fried onions, chopped fresh cilantro, or a dollop of yogurt. It’s a healthy and flavorful dish that’s perfect for a comforting weeknight meal.
