  1. Hi Aarthi have become a big fan of your blog. Tried your egg pepper roast turned out really yum . Just a small tip while boiling potatoes just steam it in pressure cooker by placing the potato cubes inside a vessel because cooking potato in water and then draining it makes it lose its nutrients. Were usually do it that way and I hope you will try it too keep up the great job
