This Instant Pot Tikka Masala is even low carb and gluten free if you pair it with this  Cilantro Cauliflower Rice.

In our test pics, we paired it with normal brown rice and it was amazing.

You can also make this one in the slow cooker.  See below the recipe for more ideas on how to have naan bread with this as well.

Pin this recipe so you don’t lose it! Just use the pin button on the image below (hover to see it on desktop). This one would go great on Instant Pot boards, slow cooker boards, Indian food boards, low carb boards, and keto boards.

For Naan bread, you can often find 100% whole grain options at places like Trader Joe’s. I’ve found a few different brands over the years. The one in the picture was actually purchased at a regular grocery store. Just look for 100% whole grain.

You can always make your own, too. We have two options:

  1. Homemade whole grain naan bread from frugalnutrition.com like we made for these curry tacos.
  2. Keto naan bread

Both of those recipes would make an outstanding pairing for this Instant Pot Tikka Masala.

To increase the spiciness level of this dish, the easiest way is to just add cayenne pepper to taste. You can use that to adjust to the 1-5 or 1-10 levels that many restaurants use.
