How to cook
Gather all ingredients.
Measure out and prepare the ingredients - chop the carrot, onions, and garlic into a small dice.
Set your Instant Pot to saute setting and add the melted coconut oil and chopped onions.
Add the chopped garlic and diced carrots to the pot with the onions and coconut oil.
Saute for about 6 minutes or until the onions are caramelized.
Add the curry paste and lentils to the sauteed onions and carrots.
Mix well to incorporate the curry paste. Saute for a few minutes, and make sure the lentils are coated in the curry paste and oil. Then add the coconut milk.
Turn off saute function and add the broth and canned diced tomatoes. Stir and combine.
Add the lid and set the Instant Pot to pressure cook on high for 6 minutes.
Release the pressure and remove the lid. Be careful of the hot steam escaping. Stir the lentils to make sure everything is well incorporated.
Prepare the rice according to package instructions and portion between bowls. Spoon on the lentils and serve immediately. Or, keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
