The Pressure Cooker is like a magic wand. The Indian housewife often feels crippled without a pressure cooker. Often, we families relocating to other countries including the pressure cooker as the highest priority item on their packing list! This magic utensil is a steel pan, covered in an airtight way with a lid having a rubber gasket. On top of the lid, there is an opening that is sealed with a special stopper (commonly called as ‘weight’ or ‘whistle’) that retains steam inside the vessel for a while, allowing it to release slowly in a controlled and safe fashion. In short, it helps you to steam cook food in a quick and convenient way, using less fuel.

Pressure cookers made of different material, of different volumes and different brands are easily available in the market. Several recipes have been given in this section, which are adapted to be cooked directly in a pressure cooker to save time. Try your hand at dishes like the Aloo Gobhi Pulao, Panchratni Dal, Sai Bhaji, Maa ki Dal and Oondhiya made using the pressure cooker. You will be surprised to know that you can even make awesome desserts like the Chocolate Pudding using this handy cooker.
