Let the vadis cool to room tempreture .Cut the Vadi into blocks of reasonable size .

DOUBLE BOILER :
Double boiler is a simple arrangement to cook food. Heat water (approximately 2 cups) in a big vessel ... Add the food content in a smaller utensil Place the small container in the bigger. Cover the bigger one with a lid so that the steam does not escape ...

Its almost similar to the cooking technique in a cooker ... Only difference is that this ones without pressure ...

Hey Manasi ,

Thankyou for your interest
Sure you can use a pressure cooker without the whistle. It is the same technique of using steam to cook. However make it doesn't get overcooked as it may fall apart if it gets dry.

Hope this helps.Let me know if you like it after you make.

Regards ,
Swati.
