      This looks really great! I have a couple of questions. When you say "cook all the remaining masala in the pressure cooker until almost dry", are you refering to the ground onion paste remaining in the pressure cooker after you have removed the chicken pieces? So you take out the chicken, but leave in the paste and keep pressure cooking? Also, when you say "fry a few pieces at a time in butter", roughly how long should they be fried? Just until browned a little on the surface? Thanks...I look forward to trying this!
