    The ground-spices washed water is mixer-jar washed water after grinding the spices.The marinade-washed water is the washed water of the dish in which the chicken pieces is marinated for 40 mins.Both water should measure 1 1/2 cups totally.In step 4:no need to add oil more because the cooked-chicken pieces will leave enough oil after pressure cooking upto 4 open the lid after 15 mins and cook till water runs dry.It will come out as if being fried in oil(believe me).

    Mr.Padmanabhan,you can ask me once. In step 1 ,I clearly said that all the ingredients except choicken pieces,it means that the Olive oil can be added to the spices and ground along with the spices. Or u can add the Olive oil in Step 2,before pressure cooking(optional only).Happy Cooking!.
