that's why you need supervision in an open dish .. which recipe maker is trying to avoid.

Re: Ghee in 8 mins

does that mean that the ghee would never burn in the cooker?

K4, first you need to understand the concept or place trust in me. Either will work.
If you want to understand ghee and pressure cooking it, this is what needs to happen. The water content in butter needs to evaporate and leave you with golden ghee. When you have water in butter, you will get back to back whistles anywhere between 5-10 seconds each. You will keep getting these rapid whistles until water in butter is gone. Then the lap time will go up to 25 seconds and counting.... then you switch off the stove. Let pressure settle and your ghee is ready.

Re: Ghee in 8 mins

trust you Ashika ji. I did not realise the increasing time gap between whistles indicates the process is done... although I reckon you did mention that, I did not realise its connection to preventing the burning.

increasing time gap or decreasing? Once pressure is achieved the cooker needs to vent so often.. if it's unable to, you soon hear a super loud bang, and hopefully if you are not around and if it didn't break into small fragments, a huge gigantic mess to clean up, sometimes even food stuck to the ceiling of the kitchen

what are you talking about? i never experienced anything like this with pressure cookers and I have been around them since I was born.
The max that can happen is the safety valve of the cooker melts.

exactly, the increase in time between the whistles indicate the water content is all done and the ghee is ready.
we have been working around cookers for several generations and only recently we are understanding its full potential.

The cooker will only vent if it has something to vent though.....
As Ashika says though, heat to be switched off when water has gone and whistles are at longer intervals - meaning cooker is running out of steam to vent....

You of course have not experienced everything cookers do sometimes blast, so much for not needing supervision.. happened to a cousin of mine, thankfully she was not around.

I thought pressure cookers came around in India only may be around late 1960s to 70s.. several generations

Sarvi, any kind of kitchen gadget, if not used properly, leads to accidents. Its the exact same thing with even Instant pot, slow cookers, even gas stoves.

I was referring to cooking by sealing the steam in. Pressure cooker is a gadget. Pressure cooking is a technique.
