Best Breakfast / Brunch : Puri Bhaji In Instant Pot (Sprouted Moth Beans Curry)

Hello Foodies
           Puri Bhaji is one of my favorite breakfast menu since childhood. I remember on Sunday
morning my Aai(Mom) used to prepare puri bhaji for breakfast and there was a race between my brother and me, that who is gonna eat more Puris and every time he wins(such lovely childhood memories). It is a perfect breakfast for lazy weekends when my Aai prepares the puri bhaji for breakfast or brunch, then she also prepares a Maharashtrian style dal-khichdi, and we used to whip this up with a dollop of ghee and tangy, spicy mango pickle, such a comforting meal. In Indian household, this sprouted moth beans curry is commonly known by the name ‘Puri Bhaji.’ In central India, Puri bhaji is served as a street snack. Along with sprouted moth beans, medium spiced potato stir fry also served.
          It's easy, scrumptious and healthy instant pot vegetarian recipe. If you are hosting a party at home and don't want to prepare something elaborate and complex, then this should be your go-to recipe. Pair it with puri, potato stir fry, and finely chopped onion-coriander. It is a simple and perfect recipe for breakfast, lunch or dinner, which is easy to digest. Curry leaves add a pleasant aroma to the dish. It is also an instant, easy and healthy side for rice and chapati.
