    Can't believe how simple it was to make the pasta and how wonderful it tasted. I knew that buying the IP was a good choice.. when so many desis rave about something, it has to be good. : )

    Thanks for the recipe, peartree. LIke I said, it was the first time I made pasta from scratch. Got two comments from DH. One was 'you made it?' and other was 'Nice'. LOL. : ) No wonder I said yes without a proposal.

    Kids liked it too! The recipe is indeed fool-proof or newbie proof!

    Wow! So impressed with this thread. Can't believe I have not thought about instant pot until I bumped into this thread. It is in my waiting list and am tempted to hit " add to cart" in Amazon. Thank you all sharing your recipes and ideas.

    @justanothergirl,

    By just reading, rereading and even looking at it gives me that aroma. :)

    @Rihana

    Another one of my favorite apart from Venpongal. I am motivated enough to do it after reading this.

    20170226_112045.jpg 20170226_112054.jpg Quintessential tanjavur delicacy... Vazhakkai Podimas

    So when parents are visiting, ammavasai is taken seriously, what with starting off with an extremely clean kitchen, stove scrubbed clean and finding my mom fresh-faced with a towel wrapped around her head starting the pressure cooker! This time, we had another set of parents invited for lunch and they were bound my the ammavasai meal rules too, and here is where I stepped in, for an easy podimas experience.

    Ingredients -

    Raw Bananas
    To temper -
    Oil
    Mustard
    Chana Dal/Urad Dal
    Green Chillies
    Salt
    Asafoetida
    Curry Leaves

    1) Cut the raw bananas in halves
    2) Fill up the IP to the minimum level required
    3) Place the cut pieces of bananas on a trivet and steam for 1 minutes with vent sealed or ~3 minutes with vent open
    4) Quick Release if vent is sealed
    5) Peel the bananas (The peels should just slide off) and run them through a grater.

    6) IP on Saute Mode and when hot -
    7) Add oil, mustard seeds, chana dal, urad dal and finely chopped green chillies. Saute until the mustard seeds splutter and the green chillies start turning a darker shade
    8) Add in the curry leaves, hing and salt
    9) Add in the grated raw bananas and just fold the tempering over and mix well. Keep in saute mode for a bit until the bottom develops a slight crunchy texture.

    A slight variation is to saute a bit of chana dal and urad dal, dhaniya and red chillies in a bit of oil, grind it to a course powder and add it to the raw bananas. But I like to keep the white color of the vazhakkai, so I don't do this.

    I find it convenient to make this in the IP for 2 reasons that I don't have to keep watching for whether the bananas will get over cooked! If they turn mushy, we can't grate it! Also, with the pot being pretty deep, it accommodates a large quantity for easy mixing!
