Tips for making Aloo Gobhi in Instant Pot:
  1. Cut cauliflower into big 2 to 3-inch florets along with the stems.
  2. Cut potatoes into thin wedges so they cook well along with the cauliflower.
  3. Reduce the cooking time to 1 or 2 minutes if you like a bite to the cauliflower OR cook on low-pressure mode.
  4. Press Cancel after the pressure cooking cycle is completed and immediately Quick Release the pressure to stop further cooking.
  5. Open the lid and take out the inner insert and put it on a trivet to stop further cooking.
