      Instructions
       

      • Grind all paste ingredients with as little water as possible.
      • Add water to the bottom of instant pot, then place the steam rack insert inside.
      • Layer vegetables according to cook time, pouring masala paste on the top most layer. Be careful not to let this paste become too runny and touch the bottom of instant pot insert – it will burn.
      • Set the instant pot to the high pressure “Steam and More” setting for 2 minutes, making sure the valve is set to the steaming mode.
      • After it is finished, quick release the pressure by moving the valve forward to the venting mode.
      • Open the instant pot, remove the insert, and mix the vegetables with 1-2 cups of water, plant yogurt, and plant milk.
