Tomato Curry Sauce (Paleo, Gluten-Free, and Vegan Recipe)

This Tomato Curry Sauce is made with a mixture of spices that give it a bit of an exotic taste with a little bit of heat.

Have you mastered using your Instant Pot yet? Me, neither. But that’s okay, because I have a couple of cookbooks by Michelle Fagone, creator of Cavegirl Cuisine, that I refer to whenever I need some IP help.

Being that I am on the quest to eat more veggies this year, I started off by making Honey-Glazed Carrots. They came out sweet and tender. They were so good that even my husband loved them. Next up, I made Michelle’s Tomato Curry Sauce.

The Tomato Curry Sauce is made with a mixture of spices that give it a bit of an exotic taste with a little bit of heat. In addition to Michelle’s suggestions to serve it over cauliflower “rice,” seafood, or chicken, I think it would be great to eat at breakfast topped with fried eggs. (Think of an Indian version of shakshuka.)

Fortunately, you can try Tomato Curry Sauce from The “I Love My Instant Pot” Paleo Recipe Book and decide for yourself how you would like to serve it.

How To Make Tomato Curry Sauce

For this special sauce, you need the following ingredients:

  • 1 28- ounce can of crushed tomatoes including juice
  • 1/2 onion peeled and finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic quartered
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup canned coconut milk

Combine all ingredients in the Instant Pot™. Lock lid. Press the Manual or Pressure Cook button and adjust the time to 10 minutes. When the timer beeps, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes. Quick-release any remaining pressure until the float valve drops and then unlock the lid.

Use an immersion blender to blend the sauce in the pot until smooth.

Pour sauce into a lidded container or jar and refrigerate until ready to use. Use within 5 days.
