At times, these pressure cooked recipes turn out to be as tasty as the traditionally made ones, and save lot of time and hassle for us, especially the working people, the moms who have to pack kids' lunch boxes....
The traditional masal is here

Potatoes - 4-5, peeled and cubed
Onion - 2, medium sized, finely chopped
Tomatoes - 2, chopped
Salt to taste
Lemon juice - 3 tbsps

To season
Gingely/cooking oil - 3-4 tsps
Hing powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 3/4 tsp
Green chillies - 3, slit or chopped, however you wish...I just slit
Ginger paste/chopped or grated ginger - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Split urad dhal - 1 tsp
Channa dhal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few

Recipe cuisine: South Indian; Category: Breakfast/lunch/dinner
Prep time: 5 mts; Cooking time: 5-7 minutes

Serves 3

Heat oil in a pressure pan, add hing and turmeric powders

Add mustard seeds, split urad channa dhals

Add ground ginger

Now, the onions and slit green chillies, and saute till the onions turn translucent

Now, the chopped tomatoes and curry leaves

Now the cubed potaotes

Salt to taste

Add water, till the potatoes are 3/4 immersed, close the lid, put the weight and cook for 3-4 whistles. If the whistles are long, 3 are enough, if they are short, bring 4 whistles.

Mash with a masher. If you want small potato lumps here and there, then do not mash very finely.
