Directions
11 STEPS
1
Select the 'sauté' function on the Instant Pot and add the ghee. Allow the ghee to heat up before proceeding.
2
Once hot, add the onion, garlic, and all of the spices (garam masala, ground coriander, cumin, paprika, sea salt, chili powder, cayenne, and turmeric) to the pot. Sauté for 1-2 minutes until the onions begin to soften and the spices are fragrant.
3
Add the chicken pieces to the pot and continue sautéing for 2-3 minutes until slightly browned.
4
Add the tomato sauce and chicken broth, stirring to combine all ingredients.
5
Press 'cancel/keep warm' to turn off the sauté function, then lock the lid in place and set the vent to 'sealing'.
6
Cook on high pressure for 9 minutes, then manually release the pressure.
7
Stir in the coconut cream (the thick white part at the top of the can of coconut milk), discarding the clear liquid.
8
Select 'sauté' mode again and bring the mixture to a boil while stirring.
9
In a small bowl, mix the arrowroot powder and water to create an arrowroot slurry, then add this to the pot and stir. The sauce will begin to thicken quickly.
10
Taste and season with additional salt if needed. Turn off the Instant Pot by pressing 'cancel/keep warm' and allow the Chicken Tikka Masala to sit until ready to serve.
11
Garnish with chopped cilantro before serving. Pair with cauliflower rice for a Whole30 meal or enjoy with basmati rice for a gluten-free option.
