Default Re: Anyone use a pressure cooker??

i think the biggest thing is just getting in the habit and i get lots of recipes online. we eat a lot of Indian food because we live in India. for part of dinner tonight though i have pressure cooker baked beans ready to go. here's my basic outline of a recipe

2-3 cups dried kidney or pinto or other beans, soaked at least 8 hrs
7T natural sweetener (you can use brown sugar, molasses, maple syrup, etc.)
1-2T salt
4 T ketchup
1 T mustard
1 pureed onion
1 T pureed/minced garlic

Put everything in the cooker, cover with about 2" of water, and let it cook on med/high for about 45 mins and then let the pressure drop on its own.

This is a quick one i also make a lot, it's called Khichadi and you can make it so many different flavors,
1 pureed onion
1t pureed ginger
1T pureed garlic
Seasonings: salt, turmeric, coriander powder, chili powder
1-3 cups chopped veggies of your choice, can add tofu too
1 c rice
1/2 c yellow or red lentils (the quick cooking kind)

Saute the first three ingredients, add desired seasonings, and then add the other stuff. Stir it all together and add about 3c water. Cook till the first whistle (about 10 mins, I think...or however your cooker takes to do rice) and turn off. Let the heat come down naturally and serve with plain yogurt.

Lmk if you want any specific recipes or help with certain foods. i my cookers!!
