Oh yum! This recipe was easy & delicious. I used my new pressure cooker for the very first time to make this recipe tonight & it was done in a jiffy - 8min after reaching proper pressure. I did saute the onions in the oil along w/ freshly grated ginger & garlic (I didn't have any ginger garlic paste) and the bay leaf before adding the remaining ingredients & sealing the pressure cooker, but I think I may skip the extra step next time & just throw it all in together. I also didn't wait to add the pureed tomato & remaining spices; I just added them with the potatoes & peas just before sealing the cooker. I was short one potato, so I added a sweet potato in its place and it was great (if you do that, I suggest omitting the sugar). I also added a bit of cumin, turmeric, and mustard seed and a dash of red chili powder. Instead of plain salt, I added hibiscus salt (I bought it on a whim and had yet to really put it to use). I also added a can of coconut milk and about a tbs of butter. I know that's a lot of changes, but it seemed like this recipe would be very forgiving. All and all, we were extremely happy with the results. Next time, I may increase the peas to 1 1/2c, but otherwise, I thought the ratios were perfect. I served this with rice, buttered soft pita, and a simple raita made with about 1/2c lowfat plain yogurt, a dash each of salt, garlic powder, and cumin, 1/2 of a peeled and pureed cucumber and about 1tsp pureed tomato. Thank you for a great recipe! YUM
