Notes

TIPS & VARIATIONS:

  1. I have prepared this dish in my electric pressure cooker, Instant Pot DUO60 6 QT.If using an 8 qt or a newer model of instant pot which are more sensitive to burn issues, add extra 1/4 cup of water before pressure cooking. 
  2. Dice the potatoes to small size ie 1 inch for faster cooking process .Also cook potatoes till they are half done before adding cabbage since both veggies have different cooking times.
  3. If you don’t have lemon juice then replace with 1/4 teaspoon of dry mango powder (amchur powder).
  4. If you do not have mentioned spices replace with curry powder .
  5. You can also add tomatoes to this recipe.
  6. I like cabbage to be little crunchy and not mushy ,so i do a Quick Pressure Release (QR) as soon as the instant pot beeps.If you want the cabbage peas to be more soft then wait for 5 minutes after instant pot beeps and then quick release remaining pressure manually. 
  7. I have successfully doubled this recipe in my 6 quart by doubling all ingredients and keeping the cook time the same.
