Heat oil in pressure cooker. Add cumin seeds; sizzle 5 seconds. Add garlic; cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until garlic turns light brown. Add onions, bell pepper and jalapeno; continue cooking, stirring frequently, 1 minute.

Add water, tomato paste, squash, corn and salt. Lock lid in place. Over high heat, bring to high pressure. Lower heat just enough to maintain high pressure; cook 2 minutes. Reduce pressure with quick-release method. Remove lid. If squash is not quite tender, replace but do not lock lid; allow squash to steam a few more minutes in residual heat.

Stir in lima beans; simmer, covered, until tender, 2 or 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro just before serving. Serves 6.
