Butter Chicken (Fast & Slow)

This Instant Pot version of classic Indian butter chicken is rich and flavorful, but its creaminess is supplied by just 2 tablespoons of butter along with pureed cashews, not by glugs of heavy cream, as often is the case. For best flavor, use roasted salted cashews rather than raw. The cilantro is used at the very end, so to save time and ensure it remains fresh and fragrant, prep it while the chicken cooks. Serve with basmati rice or warm naan.

Tip

Don't bother washing out the blender between pureeing the tomatoes and cashews; you can leave the cashew puree in the blender jar until ready to use to avoid dirtying another bowl. After adding the chicken and tomatoes to the pot, stir well to ensure the spices in the marinade are distributed throughout.
