Instant Pot Paleo Chicken Tikka Masala - an easy approach to the Indian classic that tastes just like restaurant tikka masala! |

Preparing Indian food at home has been a hobby of mine for years. The aromatic flavors, the scent of cooking with an array of spices, the process of getting a dish to taste just like the authentic version is a beautiful sensory experience – and a very welcome challenge!

If you’ve been following The Roasted Root for many moons, you may even remember my Crock Pot Chicken Tikka Masala, which broke the internet back in its hay day.

Because it’s been a long time since we have Tikka Masala-ed together, I thought I would re-visit the subject paleo-style in the Instant Pot.

Paleo Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala - a goof-proof super easy recipe that tastes just like authentic Indian tikka masala | #dairyfree #glutenfree #healthy

The traditional version of Chicken Tikka Masala uses yogurt for marinating the chicken and sometimes calls for heavy cream in the sauce. I replace the dairy using full-fat canned coconut milk and the result is sinfully delicious.

While I’m conscious of my sugar intake, for me there is nothing like sharing comfort food and warmly-spiced treats with friends and family over the holidays.

Cozying up with a slice of homemade cake on a dark, chilly evening with the people who matter the most to you is such a simple pleasure. We often take for granted how liberating (and healing!) it can be to detach from technology and be present for our loved ones through lighthearted conversation over a slice of cake.

Mango Edamame Quinoa Salad - a nutritious side dish perfect for sharing with friends and family #vegan #paleo |

Quinoa and I have been getting along famously lately. I have a tendency to set my sights on a specific food and let that flame just.rage, only coming up for air once I’ve sufficiently quenched that particular thirst. Lately, I’ve been on a quinoa kick, as I’ve been incorporating it into my daily lunch or dinner salad as a trusted source for carbs.

There are few carbs my digestive system enjoys processing, you see, so once I find one that works for my body, I get a little elated. I keep my diet fairly low-carb for health reasons (read more about that here), and my body is very picky about its preferred source of carbs. As it turns out, I process quinoa famously, which is great news because it’s one of those highly nutritious whole foods that’s super easy to incorporate into my daily life.
