Aloo-Shimla Mirch ki Sabzi/Potato-Bell Pepper Stir Fry in the Instant Pot

How to Make Aloo-Shimla Mirch Ki Sabzi
Hello Foodies,
       If you try making this aloo-Shimla mirch ki sabzi/potato-bell pepper stir fry this way, then I am sure you will make it again and again, and you will forget the other method. 
Although I may get stoned for saying this, Instant Pots are not great for every type of recipe. There are times when you're better off using a skillet to intensify the flavor and produce a better overall texture.
