4 clove garlic (lehsun) , peeled
25 mm (1") piece cinnamon
1 cloves (laung / lavang)
2 to 3 black peppercorns (kalimirch)
1 whole dry kashmiri red chilli , broken into pieces
2 to 3 tbsp water

Other Ingredients
1 tbsp oil
4 to 5 curry leaves (kadi patta)
1/3 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1/4 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1/2 cup potato cubes
1/2 cup cauliflower florets
1/4 cup chopped french beans
1/4 cup chopped carrots
1/4 cup fresh green peas
1/4 cup sliced baby corn
salt to taste
1 cup coconut milk

For Serving
steamed rice (chawal)
  1. Heat the oil in a pressure cooker, add the curry leaves, onions, tomatoes and turmeric powder, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add all the vegetables, prepared paste and salt, mix well and sauté on a medium flame for another minute.
  3. Add ¾ cup of hot water, mix well and pressure cook on a high flame for 2 whistles.
  4. Allow the steam to escape using automatic/ natural release method, (refer handy tip) before opening the lid.
  5. Add the coconut milk, mix well and serve immediately.

Handy tip:

    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. It works best for grains and for beans that you might use for salads, as quick-releasing the pressure can cause the beans to split apart.
  2. Automatic release method: turn the pressure selector dial on the lid to the release position and the steam will release.
