Beans Carrot Palya – Instant Pot Recipe

Some recipes are simple to make but delectable and comforting 🙂 And not to forget, such dishes are usually soothing to the palate and the stomach!

One such simple recipe loaded with nutrients is the Green beans and carrot palya. Palya is nothing but a dry sabji. My better half loves this with some homemade phulkas.

Thanks to INSTANT POT – this dish is now much more easier and faster to make 🙂
