Mealthy Tip

Substitute coconut milk for the heavy cream for a rich, coconut flavor.

If cilantro isn't your thing, use fresh parsley instead! Parsley still gives you the pop of color and a hint of herbal flavor, without the strong taste of cilantro.

This tasted great! It definitely took me longer than 15 minutes prep, but I'm probably slow. Had jasmine rice on hand and a smallish pyrex bowl, so did one cup rice/one cup water, and it cooked perfectly!

I love chicken tikka masala and this recipe does an excellent job of capturing the dish's rich flavor. I've usually tried it with heavy cream but swapped in coconut milk this time and am super pleased with the results.

I used chicken thighs instead of breasts to make this tikka masala in my pressure cooker and it was absolutely delicious. I had never used the trivet before, and now that I've discovered I can cook two things at one time I am obsessed. It's so easy, I don't have to multitask, and it's less pots and pans to scrub! Woohoo!

We made this meal as our first instapot experience and wasn’t disappointed! It tasted as if we got it straight from an Indian restaurant!

I’m still very new to the Mealthy pot. After making a few batches of steel cut oats, I decided to try this recipe next. Sooooo good. Instructions were straight forward and easy to understand. This recipe will become a staple in our house to replace Indian food take-out.

Really tasty! Substituted plain sheeps milk yogurt for the greek yogurt and used coconut milk in place of heavy cream and it was great. Did find that the sauce was a bit too thin for my liking, so I thickened it with some corn starch. Will definitely make this again.
