Subject:         cannot make dahl in pressure cooker?
Date: January 15, 2006 at 12:19 am PST


I want to buy a pressure cooker, and one of the things I cook most is lentil/dahl soup. I was surprised to read in an amazon review for a Kuhn Rikon PC that the manual says you cannot use it to cook dahls:

One caveat though is that the cookers are not useful in cooking soft grains such as some pulses (such as Indian "daals" such as Arahar/Moong etc). They tend to clog up the "whistle". But it seems that the cooker still remains safe to use. To Kuhn Rikon's credit, they do point out this limitation in the manual.

I do see a recipe for red lentil dahl on this board though. So, is this exaggerated? Any comments would be much appreciated.

Regards, Lena.
