 Post subject: pressure cooker use in indian recipes
PostPosted: Fri Apr 30, 1999 4:55 pm 
Some Indian recipes direct the cook to pressure cook an item for a number of "whistles". How does one convert this for a U.S. pressure cooker? Many thanks!

I have an American Cooker without whistle and
it works just fine. Mostly for chicken it takes
3-5 mnts on high heat and then reduce the heat
to its lowest and cook for another 4-7 mnts.
Usually it is written on them the cooking time
for lentils potatoes chicken etc. on the cooker
itself. After a while you will get a feel of it.
Take caution for the first few times and open
the lid earlier than the given time. Check if it
is done by fork or fingers and if not done close
the lid and put on heat again. When the steam builds up reduce the heat to low and cook again
for a few mnts. By opening it again and again
you won't spoil the recipe. Good luck in your
cooking.
