Mr. Muthukumar, do not worry the pressure cook will not explode but it is also good to follow the instruction as Neelam has advised to cook meet for only ten minutes. I have been practicing when I cook meet for Polav here in Afghanistan.

I wish to know how one may pressure cook the mutton without any water? Won't there be an explosion or something ? Thanks. If this query is answered I am seriously thinking of trying this recipe. Thanks. Muthukumar
