Easy Weeknight Chana Masala

30 minute comfort food that tastes like you slaved away all day but what you really did was drink coffee and watch reality TV until you realized you might actually have to feed the fam. Right? Don’t let it just be me.

The secret for this one? The Instant Pot. But you can totally make this without one, you just have to simmer it a bit longer. So you might miss half a show. But it’s worth it. It’s very yummy.

Recipe-ish:

3 Tbsp coconut oil
1 onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp ginger, finely grated
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
2 tsp garam masala
1 tsp fenugreek
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 large tomato, chopped
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp sugar
1 cup vegetable broth
3 14 oz (398 ml) cans of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 Tbsp butter (plant based or regular)

Turn the Instant Pot on Saute and add in the coconut oil
Add in the onion and cook until softened, 3-4 minutes
Add in the garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, garam masala, fenugreek, turmeric and cayenne. Cook 2-3 minutes.
Add in the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar and 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper. Stir well.
Add in the vegetable broth and chickpeas.
Place the lid on and turn on High Pressure mode. Set for 7 minutes.
When complete, let natural release for 15 minutes and then quick release any remaining pressure.
Stir in the butter, add more S&P to taste.
