Before you leave the kitchen area do check the cooking time and proportion.Each of the grain needs to re-hydrate entirely with exact quantity of fluid.The pressure cooking time chart is recommended while cooking.
The food grains expand to once or double and you don’t want them to get any place close to the cover of the cooker.So,don’t fill the pressure cooker more than half way with the food preparation water/fluid.
While cooking,add a bit of fat such as a bit of butter,oil or ghee,whichever goes with your recipe all along with the grains.The oil,butter will decrease the quantity of froth that is produced while the grains boil under pressure.
Maintain the 10-minute normal release method after cooking is done.Almost all food grains should be opened using this process and it is one the most delicate pressure cooker opening methods that ensures no starch/foam comes scattering out of the cooker valve while you open the lid of the cooker.
