    Handy tip:
  1. Natural release method: to use this method, remove the pressure cooker from the hot burner and let the pressure drop by cooling down naturally.

I always thought bhaji will become mushy if cooked in a pressure cooker. But after i tried this recipe, i realised it was a misconception. The bhaji is little spicy but super tasty. Also it is quick because all you have to do is chop all the vegetables and pressure cook togather.
