Instant Pot Herbed Masala Lentil Curry is a flavorful protein packed entree. Its a medley of Indian spices and fresh herbs. All it needs is one pressure cooker and 30 minutes.
Add olive oil to your instant post and set it to saute function. Then adjust its temperature to normal/medium.
Then, add garlic, ginger, asafetida, cumin seeds and fennel seeds. Next, mix it well in the oil.
As soon you hear the sizzle add onion and saute for 30 seconds.
Then, add tomato paste and saute again for 30 seconds.
Now, add zucchini, broccoli, red bell pepper and saute again for 30 seconds.
Later, fold in green lentils and mix it with a spoon.
If you think the masala is sticking then cancel the setting of your instant post and add rest of ingredients to it. Or else let it be at the saute function while you add the rest of the ingredients.
Cover the lid of the instant pot and close the whistle.
Thereafter, change the setting of instant post to beans/chili and let it cook in the normal/medium mode.
Once your instant post beeps release the whistle. Once the valve is ready to open pull out the lid and enjoy it warm with steamed rice/quinoa or naan with a side salad.
