Take the pressure cooker. Add all the given ingredients in the cooker with 1/2 cup of water. Cook till one whistle. Let the pressure release on its own. If you are using a sauce pan, then boil and cook all the ingredients with 2 cups of water, till carrots have become soft. Close the pan with lid and cook.
Once the pressure is released from the cooker, add 2 cups of cold water and blend the vegetables in a smooth puree either by using a hand blender or a high power blender. Same steps to be followed if cooking in a sauce pan.
