  1. You make making curry seem very easy! We always have to go out for Indian food because I’m not very confident in my abilities. No excuses now. This looks simple. And I’m a huuuuuge garlic fan too =)

  2. This was really good. I jus made a small change and used chicken broth instead of water.

  3. Hello please tell me how many minutes means the two whistles for a non whistling pressure cooker. Thanks
