ur dishes r all great..i have a doubt regarding dis dish..when should we add vinegar?n is it ok to cook beef in a pressure cooker in dis case(in thin coconut milk)?thank u...

Sarah Naveen said...

hey Anon..
I forgot to mention it ..thank you... You can add vinegar when you marinate the beef or when you cook it just before the thin coconut milk.
Its better not to pressure cook it with coconut milk. If at all you want to pressure cook the beef , omit potato and coconut milk and instead add 1/ cup water and cook for minimum 3 whistles. then Add potato and thin coconut milk and simmer till the potato is cooked and continue with the process

Hey, Sarah, this looks great. We had a couple of questions, though-for bowl 1, how much ggp do you use? And with respect to the cloves and the cinnamon, when do you put these in?

Sarah Naveen said...

Mary..that was a serious typo ! pardon me ! i have corrected it :-) about adding the whole spices , you can either do it just before sauteing onions or just before you add the spice powders. Its purely a matter of individual taste. If in the beginning it has a nutty taste , and when later the flavors are strong. !
