  • While the pressure is releasing in the instant pot chop onions, serrano peppers and cilantro leaves finely. Additionally, core and dice the tomatoes into 1/4-inch dice, and also cucumber to 1/4-inch dice.

Notes

  • On a scale of 1 to 5 in terms of spice levels I would place this dish at 3, with 1 being low and 5 being high. So you can reduce, eliminate or increase the serrano peppers and reduce the red chili powder as per your spice tolerance.
  • I used raw peanuts with the skin on. You can use skinless as well. Make sure they are unsalted and raw and NOT ROASTED.
