  • First of all, let’s cook the barley. Rinse barley in water once. Soak in 2 cups of water for about 2-3 hours. Pressures cook (using the same water that was used for soaking) for one whistle on high flame and then simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Let the pressure settle down, remove barley from pressure cooker strain it (reserve the stock as we are going to use it in our soup). Let the barley cool down a bit.
  • Again use a cup of fresh water to wash the barley grains and strain the barley and preserve the stock. this enures that all the strach from barley cooked barley is taken away which prevents the grains from sticking when we stir fry them.
