  1. thanks for sharing. i am glad i found ur site.

  2. The dorm that i live in do not allow the use of pressure cooker. Is there any roundabout way of cooking this dish in a deep chef pan. It would be so very kind of you if you could give instructions on how to cook this in deep chef pan. Thank you.

    1. Hi,
      Thank you for visiting our site. You can make this dish without using pressure cooker. You can use any deep pan with cover. Please follow all the other instruction and wait till your beef become soft. This may take longer time than the pressure cooker.
