Tips and Tricks:-

  1. Vinegar drops are added to absorb salt and turmeric fast into the meat. So no need to soak the meat and keep for hours like in traditional style.
  2. Start cleaning and cutting onion, while the meat is getting cooked in Pressure cooker.
  3. Chopping tomato and slitting green chillies can be done while onion is getting fried. Stir the content in the pan in between.
  4. We need to give certain gap before opening the pressure cooker once after the 4th whistle. 
  5. The entire frying can be done in that gap, this allows meat inside the cooker correctly cooked in the pressure.
