You can use an inner pot on a stand in a water bath, the first
pressure setting, and turn the heat down when it reaches pressure.
The other thing is to allow the pot to cool slowly. This reduces the
amount of bubbling inside the pot which otherwise creates

Whilst this reduces the amount of time spent with the burner on it
also lengthens the cooking time somewhat.

A good recipe is 1 cup red lentils, 6 cherry tomatoes halved, 1/4
tsp hing/asafoetida, 1 dried chilli crushed, 1 tsp salt, 1 crushed
cardammon pod, 1 Tbsp butter, toasted flaked almonds, 2 cups
water. Serve with toasted shredded coconut. Pressure setting 2 for
5-8 minutes.

I overcooked it so it turned into a mashed potato consistency and
needed some water to be added on serving but the flavour was
very satisfying.

Good luck
