Step 5:     Pour ¼ cup warm water and sugar into the pressure cooker, cover with the lid and cook on high heat till 1 whistle. After one whistle, switch to low heat and cook for 30 to 35 minutes. Switch off the heat and let the pressure release naturally.

Step 6:     Open the lid of the pressure cooker and cook on low heat till the gravy is dry enough to coat the meat well.

Step 7:     In another pan, heat 1 tbsp. oil and add the sliced potatoes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper powder and cook the potatoes till done and browned on both sides. Do the same with the onion rings till caramelized and brown.
