    In the same oil add Bay Leaf, and fry for 2-3 seconds. Add the onion to the pan, add salt & sugar and cover the pan. Let the onion cook on low heat for 5 minutes.
    After 5 minutes, add the marinated meat to the pan and again cover the pan. Let the meat cook on low meat for atleast 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    After 20 minutes open the pan , higher the heat little and start frying the meat, which is called "Koshano" in Bengali till oil oozes from the meat.
    Now turn off the heat, and add the stir fried masala mixed meat to the pan along with the fried potatoes, close the lid of the cooker and place it on medium heat.
    Cook the meat on medium flame atleast for 3 whistles. After 3 whistles, turn off the heat and let the pressure itself. When all the pressure released, open the lid, sprinkle the ghee & garam masala.
    Serve "Panthar Mangsher Jhol" with steamed rice & cucumber salad... Enjoy....
