You can use the following code, it worked for me perfectly.

import boto3
ec2 = boto3.resource('ec2')
instance = ec2.create_instances(
    ImageId = 'ami-009d6802948d06e52',
    MinCount = 1,
    MaxCount = 1,
    InstanceType = 't2.micro',
    KeyName = 'nabarupa',
    SubnetId = 'subnet-0yhg678990d56c277')
print (instance[0].id)

Hope this helps.

What happens if I do not mention a subnetID?
If you don't specify a subnet-id then it will create a EC2 in the default VPC.
Thank you. That makes sense.
