*********************** Preparation: ***********************

1 Pre heat the liner and then reduce the onion-tomato base:

Turn on ‘Saute’ Mode, add oil to the liner.Once the oild is hot, add onions. Fry till the onions turn light brown and then add the mint leaves.Add slit green chilies and continue to saute for a minute. Add tomatoes and let them fry till they become mushy.

2 Add the meat and fry/brown the meat.

Carefully add the meat into the onion base and mix well.The meat needs to fry in the oil.Occasionally stir-fry the meat so that it browns evenly. This steps contributes heavily to the taste, as frying the meat in dry heat improves the taste, as compared to just pressure cooking without frying.

3 Add water and other masalas

Add 3 cups of water(to the point till the meat is almost submerged) Add coconut powder Add nawabi meat masala Close the IP lid and pressure cook for 15 minutes.

4 NPR for around 13-15 minutes.

You can do a QR for chicken, but for red meat, its better to do NPR.

5 Bring to a boil

Open the lid carefully, after the pressure has been released and safety valve has dropped.Check for the tenderness of the meat using a fork.The meat should be very tender, and should fall off the bone,that is when its completely cooked.If the meat isnt tender, pressure cook the meat for another 10 minutes and NPR.

Turn on Saute mode, add garam masala powder, add kasturi methi/fenugreek leaves and corriander leaves. Let it come to a boil and let it simmer for 5 minutes.

Turn off the IP, and serve hot!
