  12. Add 1 glass of water. Cover with lid and let simmer till the chunks absorb the seasonings well.

  13. Now, add the potatoes. Saute so that the potatoes are nicely coated with the gravy.

  14. Add 2 to 4 cups of water and put on the lid. Cook for 3 whistles on high flame.

  15. Lower the heat and cook for 1 or 2 whistles more. Cooking time depends on the size of the potatoes too.

  16. Shut off the flame and let the pressure release on its own.

  17. Lastly, garnish with green coriander leaves.
