Instructions
Preparation:
  1. Layer the dry ingredients in the jar in the order listed.
To Cook:
  1. Place all of the jarred ingredients into the Instant Pot. Add 6 cups of vegetable broth or water. Stir to mix. Cover with the lid and ensure the vent is in the “sealed” position. Pressure Cook on High for 45 minutes. Allow the steam pressure to release naturally for 30 minutes, then release any remaining pressure manually.

    I had read in a email about making Indian Butter Chicken that one can make one’s own Garam Masala but I cannot find it anywhere. Where would I find how to blend my own. Thank you. I have the Cookbook with the Indian Butter Chicken recipe but need to blend the Garam Masala.
