Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala with Cauliflower and Peas
I’ve created a lightened up, dairy-free Chicken Tikka Masala with Cauliflower and Peas in the Instant Pot to satisfy my craving for Indian food! This mild curry is made with boneless chicken thighs cooked in a tomato base, with lots of spices and coconut milk. You can serve this with garlic naan or basmati rice on the side (cauliflower rice would work too to keep it low carb!)
This is a great beginner dish if you’re new to Indian food, which is said to originate in the UK, very similar to butter chicken. Vegetables are not typically added but I love the addition of cauliflower and peas. My husband and oldest daughter Karina love it with both rice and garlic naan which I buy frozen at Trader Joe’s.
If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can simply make this on the stove and double the cook time. You could easily make this whole30 or paleo by eliminating the peas and serving this with cauliflower rice.
