  • I've used 7.5 liter pressure cooker to cook the paya. normally i cook the paya ahead of time once then add masala and cook it again this way the paya is cooked to perfection.
  • Once the paya is added to the pressure cooker add water till the paya is covered add turmeric powder and cover place the whistle and allow the paya to cook for 5 to 6 whistles.
  • Heat a wok on medium flame add oil fry all the spices allow to splutter.
  • Add the red chillies and fry a bit.
  • Add onion, coconut, coriander powder, ginger garlic paste and fry till onion is transparent.
  • Add the fried masala to a mixer jar add 1/4 Cup water and grind to smooth paste.
