Lunch got ready in a jiffy. I have given the recipes individually. In case you would like to try it the way I have, please use a standardized pressure cooker and the separators as in the picture above. Layer Rasam in the smaller cavity created and potato in the larger. I piled the potatoes on one side as I wanted to minimize the risk of burning - as the potatoes were mixed with the spices.
