Indian cuisine has a knack for taking a basic protein like chicken, and giving it an incredibly addictive taste. The secret is in the spices that come together to balance each other, and provide a backbone of flavor for the dish. Indian dishes can often be time-consuming to prepare, but this Instant Pot recipe makes it easy and fast to create this mildly spicy favorite.
The ingredients in this dish are ones you likely already have in your pantry. Garam masala is a combination of spices — usually black pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, coriander, cumin, and nutmeg — that is commonly used in Indian cooking. You can make your own by toasting whole spices and grinding them in a spice grinder, or you can pick up a pre-made jar in the supermarket's spice section.
