Recipe Notes

Note: If you pressure cook the curry put the kaju paste and peanuts powder after you remove the curry from the cooker and cook it further and then allow it rest for some time before you serve it. By pressure cooking the soya nuggets get soft and tend to absorb the flavour in the curry making it more flavourful to eat.
