It also imparts a dark dan and beautiful colour to the dish. It makes your dish very tasty and flavorful.

In a pressure cooker add the pork, grounded mixture, cracked peppercorns, meat masala, mix well and cook for about 10 minutes stirring in between. Add tomatoes, around 1 cup water along with soaked chilly water, cover the pressure cooker lid and pressure cook for about 8-10 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally and open the lid.
