  • Now is time to add turkey.I have added some winter vegetables,like carrots, potatoes,brussels sprout.You can add your choice of veg.Add salt to your taste.
  • As everyone knows that turkey is bit dry and takes more time than chicken to cook,that is why I transferred everything into a pressure cooker to cook faster.Add one glass of water or add water up to everything covers.At this point you can cook this into oven 200 degree for 1 hour.In presure cooker it will take 3 whistles at medium heat.
