Chef Tips:

  1. Do not add more water, this dish should be neither too watery nor too thick, so try to make gravy of medium thick consistency.
  2. I have told you the shortest way of making this dish in the cooker by using hand blender, the other method is you can boil the nutri nuggets and potatoes, make the gravy separately and then mix. It will be the long way method and also time consuming. Try in the way I have told, trust me It would be so wonderful and yummy.


  1. I made this yesterday and was delicious. My mother in law makes this very similarly but adds kasuri methi. We had this with home made methi paratha and it was a great pair.
