  2. Heat a pressure cooker with oil, add bay leaf, cinnamon stick and fennel seeds. Saute till the aroma comes out.

  3. Then add the ginger and sauté for few seconds. Add tomatoes, cook till it is softened.

  4. Finally add the rest of the spice powders and give the masala for the chaat a stir. Cook till the raw smell goes away. This will take about 3 to 4 minutes.

  5. At this stage add the soaked dried green peas and give it a stir. Add 2 cups of water and pressure cook it for 4 to 5 whistles or for at least 20 to 25 minutes and turn off the heat.
