- Just like Oven, Pressure cooker also needs preheating, so preheat the oven for minimum 10 minutes on the medium flame.
- Remove the gasket (Rubber Ring – Black Color ring)from the lid of the pressure cooker.
- Remove the whistle this is a very important step. As there is no liquid or water in the pressure cooker so remove it.
- Place a thick plate (which usually comes with the pressure cooker) or a separator between the container containing the mixture and the cooker because the container and the cooker should not be in direct contact with each other OR you can put a good amount of salt or sand which acts as the pressure controller and circular ring and then container which has batter.
- Don’t add water to the cooker.
- Always use a pot holder while you place or remove the cake tin from the pressure cooker. After placing the batter in the cooker, heat it on medium heat for about 5 minutes. Lower the flame later and wait for 45 to 60 minutes for the cake to cook depending on the size of the cake and type of cake as per the recipe.
