    pattikay in L.A.'s Note:

    This is a mildly spicy dish from Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking. I imagine chicken would probably work in this recipe as well. I made this with beef and added some potatoes. Posted for ZWT IV.

      I made the pressure cooker version of this with beef, for 20 min. I had all the ingredients except fresh garlic but I did have pre-fried garlic so I estimated the amount. With the p.c., no water is called for but I was worried that there would not be enough liquid for a p.c. so I added 1/4 cup. Next time I won't, because there was plenty that came out from the tomato, onion, yogurt, etc and I had to reduce the sauce for about 10 min to get the saltiness to the level I liked. The flavor is not too strong, with mild heat; it's slightly tangy with a nice mellow herb taste from the cilantro. But I did think the beef didn't have much flavor as I would've liked so you have to get some sauce with every bite. The stovetop version should be better for getting the flavors to penetrate the meat but for the p.c. version, I would marinate it for 20-30 mins in the fridge and pierce the meat with a fork too. Having fresh garlic would've made this taste even better of course. I'll definitely make this again.
