    You’re really a life saver for all bachelors like me!!!
    Thanks a ton 🙂

    Just wanted you help as i was looking to loose weight but can’t find dishes or recipes which require less oil or ghee.

    Something like boiled chaanas or chole with sliced onion,tomato and lime.
    It would be really great if you could help me out with my weight loss as well as treating my taste-buds.
    Awaiting your reply.
    Thanks Again 🙂

  5. Hi Dassana,

    This is an excellent and simple recipe. It is the first time I have made a dry curry in a pressure cooker. I did not know this was possible. Do you think it would be safe to add broccoli to this recipe using the pressure cooker? I have been looking for Indian ways to cook broccoli!

    Thanks,

    Michelle

    • thanks michelle for the feedback. yes you can add broccoli to the recipe as well cook it in the pressure cooker.

  6. I can’t thank you enough for all these recipes. You are a life saver. I’m a bachelor living with a bunch of friends. I’d rather cook and eat at home than eat at restaurants and dhabas. Firstly its light on the pocket and also on your stomach. Any one can cook with your recipes. Thanks again. 🙂

    • welcome shashank. i agree with you. home cooked food is best.
