Notes

  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 1/4 cup of water before pressure cooking. 
  2. If you want a little more spicy, add more red chilli powder or 1/2 tsp of garam masala.
  3. If you don't have lemon juice then replace with 1/4 teaspoon of dry mango powder (amchur powder).
  4. You can also add onions and tomatoes to this recipe, but i like it without these.
  5. 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 release pressure manually. 
  6. You can skip peas to make this low carb/keto friendly recipe.
  7. I have successfully doubled this recipe in my 6 quart by doubling all ingredients and keeping the cook time the same.
