Mixed Vegetable Diwani Handi


Here is a restaurant style side dish which can be paired with any bread and is perfect either for lunch or dinner. These quick pressure cooker dishes I prepare for dinner so that I spend less time in the kitchen in the evenings. The gravy is rich and creamy  as we add the cashew paste. Hence you can avoid this at dinner though this features in our weekend dinner.
