Instant Pot Curry with Chickpeas, Tomatoes & Spinach

First, let me begin by saying that I am fully aware that this is not an authentic preparation of curry. I mean, I live in Florida, with roots from Alabama and the Carolinas. But, this recipe is a quick, flavorful, Americanized Instant Pot curry. And it’s been a big hit every time I’ve served it! Try it with this Coconut-Herb Rice.

I’ve eaten a lot of “quick and easy” curries before. And, quite frankly, they often lack the most important ingredient in ANY food: Flavor! Well, let me assure you that this version delivers. I’ve taken this dish to multiple potlucks. And surprisingly, it has been the big hit! (Possibly because no one knew it was a plant-based recipe…? Lol.)
