After opening the pressure pan , bring the curry to boil . Add besan and turmeric powder mixed in 1/4 cup of water. Let it simmer for a while . Add a few drops of coconut oil . Serve with puri or roti .

PS: In the authentic method you have to boil and mash potatoes. As I am very lazy when it comes to peeling boiled potatoes I went with this method. Nobody at home fancies Puri. So Chapathi masala it is .
