1 Put the first 8 ingredients, i.e., from the gram to the turmeric, then salt into a pressure cooker. Add water enough to come about 1 1/2 inch above all the ingredients. Close the cooker and allow it to reach maximum pressure, then reduce heat and cook for 45 minutes.
2 Open the cooker, check that the gram is tender and well blended, then add the cream and curds along with the coriander. Cover and simmer for another 30 minutes.
3 In a small pan, heat the butter or ghee. Add the ginger and fry lightly.
4 Add the cumin and cinnamon and fry for a few seconds more.
