Chicken tikka masala in electric pressure cooker

This is my first dish cooking this way, so here I go! This is a lite version without heavy cream, so if you want the full fat version, you will need to modify this recipe.

I love this frozen ginger, found it at Wally world…

Start on Saute, add coconut oil, onions, garlic, ginger, and dry spices. Saute until translucent. Hit cancel and turn off. Add tomato sauce.

Pressure for 15 minutes on meat setting.

Open and add coconut milk and cilantro.

Serve over rice.

Give it a try!
