Ingredients for Easy Butter Chicken with Rice:

For the rice
  • 1 cup basmati rice, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the chicken
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons Garam Masala
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 4 ounces (½ stick) salted butter, cubed
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ to ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro

How to Make Butter Chicken with Rice Instant Pot:

  1. For the rice: In a 6- or 7-inch heatproof bowl, combine the rice, water, ghee, and salt.
  2. For the chicken: In the Instant Pot, combine the tomatoes and their juices, garlic, ginger, 1 teaspoon of the garam masala, the turmeric, paprika, salt, cumin, and cayenne. Stir to combine. Add the chicken. Place a tall steamer rack on top of the chicken mixture. Place the bowl of rice on the rack.
  3. Secure the lid on the pot. Close the pressure-release valve. Select MANUAL and set the pot at high pressure for ten minutes. At the end of the cooking time, allow the pot to sit undisturbed for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure.
  4. Remove the bowl of rice and set aside. Remove the chicken and put aside on a plate. Using an immersion blender, blend the sauce directly in the pot until smooth. Let the sauce cool for 5 minutes. Stir in the butter, cream, cilantro, and remaining 1 teaspoon garam masala. Remove half the sauce, transfer to a storage container, and freeze or refrigerate for another use.
  5. Break up the chicken into bite-size pieces and add it to the sauce in the pot.
  6. Serve the chicken with the hot rice.
