Instant Pot Lentil and Vegetable Curry

Instant Pot Lentil and Vegetable Curry

I’ve been craving Indian food for so long and very rarely can I get my family to agree to go to an Indian Restaurant when we are trying to pick a place to eat for dinner. So I had to take matters into my own hands. This recipe for Lentil and Vegetable Curry is super simple and so very flavorful. I served it with a side of jasmine rice, but any grain would do.

My love affair with the Instant Pot continues, as this was a QUICK AND EASY interpretation of “Lentil and Vegetable Curry” that was whipped up in under 30 minutes. The kids really liked it! I know they love any excuse to eat Naan Bread, and that went perfectly with this comfy bowl of warm, fragrant spice.
