Pakistani-Style Spiced Beef Stew

This rich, aromatic stew, called nihari, traditionally is made with a special seasoning blend known as nihari masala, a mixture that might contain more than a dozen spices. To create similar complexity with far fewer ingredients, we rely on curry powder (for color and savory notes) and garam masala (for its spicy warmth). Lemon juice stirred in at the end adds brightness that balances the stew's richness. Serve with basmati rice or warmed flatbread and, if you desire a little spice, garnish with sliced jalapeño or serrano chilies.

Tip

Don't slice the onions too thinly. A ½-inch thickness or so ensures the pieces won't turn to mush during pressure cooking. Make sure to cook the onions until browned, as this builds flavor.
