-Make some cuts and incisions in the meat. Combine everything except yogurt and oil in a bowl and rub this mixture on the meat.

-Heat oil in a pressure cooker and place the marinated meat (with bone) in it. If the bone is bigger than the cooker cut it with the bone cutting knife. Add potatoes.

      No i have not added any water in the pressure cooker because I have put all the left over marinade and if we will add water the meat will smell.
      it will take around 30 mins on low heat…..

      i hope that helps…….
