Winner Winner Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala Dinner

It's a good thing when your cooking looks at least a little like the cover.

If you have an Instant Pot get this book!*

I made Chicken Tikka Masala from this Indian Instant Pot Cookbook by Urvashi Pitre of the Two Sleevers cooking blog. She has a lot of "low-carb appetizers, soups, and dinner recipes big on taste and short on calories. From Stove Top to Instant Pot, these recipes are fast, varied and most importantly...delicious."

It was really good and I got a passing grade from an experienced Indian food connoisseur.

There are a lot of ingredients I have never used and it does take some prep time but it was worth it. When you make the recipe you will make extra sauce. It can be used for a lot of things. I also made a coconut tomato soup from this book as a first course. It also tasted great.

I can't wait to make more from this cookbook.

Here is the recipe link and here is the ingredients list
