What is chickpea tikka masala?

Chickpea tikka masala includes easy canned chickpeas in a warming curry  sauce made from ginger, coconut milk, spices, and tomatoes. Traditional  tikka masala is made with meat or vegetables and a cream-based sauce.  Both vegan and non-vegan recipes are creamy, a little smokey, and full  of Indian spices.

Start by sautéing the onion, ginger, and garlic together in a large pan. Next, add in the spices, salt, tomato sauce, coconut milk, and chickpeas. Give it a good stir to bring it all together. Let the mix simmer on the stove while you stir it frequently. Spoon  the finished tikka masala over rice and serve with naan on the side.

Saute the onion, ginger, and garlic on Saute mode in the Instant Pot. When they’re soft and fragrant, turn the Instant Pot off and add in  the rest of the ingredients. Cook on high pressure for 8 minutes, then  let the pressure release naturally.
