  2. 2.You can use any vegetables of your choice like capsicum(bell pepper),cabbage.Frozen vegetables can be used.
  3. 3. You can also do a Natural Pressure Release(NPR) ie wait for 10 minutes after the POT beeps and then open the lid or use Rice mode if you have more time to cook.
  4. 4. You can increase or decrease spice accordingly.
  5. 5.Vegans can skip ghee
