North Indian cuisine brings back nostalgic memories of Delhi.

This blogging marathon for the next 3 days my memories of Delhi and Amma cooking.


Serves: 10
Futura Pressure cooker time: 20 minutes
Recipe Source: Futura Cookbook
  • 2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 3 red Kashmiri chillies, dry and whole
  • 2 large onions, grated
  • 3 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 tbsp red chilli powder
  • Salt
  • 2½ kidney bean soaked overnight or in hot water for 2 hours and drained
  • 4¼ water
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder


  • Heat the oil in the cooker, add the chillies and stir-fry for a few seconds.
  • Add the onions and fry gently till golden brown.
  • Now add the ginger garlic paste stir fry till you get a nice aroma.
  • Add the tomatoes, chilli powder and salt.
  • Mix and cook till oil separates. You will need to do this  cooking on of course low flame and for about 5 minutes. Remember to stir occasionally.
  • Now add the soaked beans and the water. Stir. Close the cooker and bring to full pressure on high flame.
  • Reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes. In a regular cooker cook for 6-7 whistles.
  • Once done cool the cooker naturally.
  • Open the cooker. Partially mash the beans with the ladle.
  • Add garam masala and serve hot with naans or rice. I served with onion and green chilli stuffed rotis.
