After cooker cools down, with a slotted spoon, remove the potatoes on a tray & let them cool to room temperature for 1 hour.

After 1 hour, peel & cut in medium size cubes.

2. Prepare the Tadka. In a saucepan on 5/10 flame setting, add 1/2 tablespoon oil. Once it is hot, add 1/2 teaspoon rai, 1/2 teaspoon jeera, 1/8 teaspoon hing, 1/2 tablespoon garlic paste

Mix once. Add the potatoes, 1 tomato finely cut, add 2 cups water, add spices - 1.5 teaspoons salt, 1/4 teapsoon haldi, 2 teaspoons Red Chilli powder, 2 teaspoons Pav Bhaaji Masala, 3 teaspoons Dhaanajeeru (dhaniajeera) Mix well.

Let sabzi cook on medium heat for 6-8 minutes till tomatoes soften and oil starts floating on top of the sabzi.

Lift 7-8 potato pieces with a big spoon, mash them completely with a smaller spoon & add them back in the sabzi. This will slightly thicken the gravy.
