  • After the cooker whistles 5 times, turn the knob to simmer and continue to cook for 25- 30 minutes.
  • When cooked, allow them to cool.

    For Masala
  • Take a pan/ heavy-bottomed kadai and heat oil in it. Add chopped onions and saute, till they get golden brown.
  • Add ginger, garlic, tomatoes, red chili powder, salt, turmeric powder and green chilies and saute it till the masala thickens.
