  • 4 nos country eggs You can use regular white eggs too
  • 1 cup water


  • Add 1 cup water to instant pot inner steel pot then place the trivet on it.
  • Place the eggs on the trivet like this.
  • Close with lid then press pressure cook mode.
  • Set timer to 5 mins.Pressure cook mode - High setting as shown below.
  • Initially the steel button is down as shown below.
  • After few mins the button will automatically go up as shown below.
  • The timer will decrease and once it reaches 0 it gives a beep sound indicating it has finished.
  • It automatically goes to keep warm mode once the timing is over.
  • Wait for 5 mins then quick release manually but pressing the button as shown below.You can quick release immediately too but I prefer to wait for few mins to get perfect hard boiled eggs.
  • Once pressure is released manually the steel button goes down as shown.
  • Open the lid andthe eggs are done.Use a tong to carefully take out the eggs.
  • Transfer all the eggs to a bowl containing water.Set aside for 5 mins atleast until its warm enough to handle.
  • Tap the eggs on the kictehn counter one by one to break open the eggs here and there and put it inside the water.Repeat to finish.The water enters into the eggs thus making the shells easily peelable.
  • Then start peeling.
  • Peeled eggs ready!You can either gobble up as usch or use it for your curries.


  • Once the timer is done, you can manually pressure release atonce also but I prefer to wait for 5 mins then release to get a perfect hard boiled yolk.
  • Incase you forget to stand near and manual release and leave it to release by itself then the eggs will be a little hard but edible ofcourse :)
