Also reduces cooking time by up to 70% for fast resultswithout the loss of valuable nutrients and flavor. Durable aluminum construction ensures long-lasting performance. Compact and lightweight design makes pressure cooker easier to store and carry. Independent release valves prevent over-pressurization even if the other two valves become clogged. What is afghan pressure cooker. Ordinary open-pot cooking is done at the boiling point of water which produces steam at sea level at 100c (212f). Pressure cooking works by sealing the steam in a pot so that there is a rise in pressure to a safe, controlled inside a container (afghan pot) which raises the boiling point of water and therefore the cooking temperature. The afghan pressure cooker is a unique type of cooker, very similar to a pressure cooker in principle, greatly decreasing the normal cooking time vs using a commonly used kitchen pot. Foods cook under pressure at 121c (250f) at a pressure of 15 psi (103 kpa) or less (1 kg per square cm). The afghan pressure cooker is sealed with an airtight lid which allows pressure to build up inside the pot. A seal prevents the steam from escaping, thus requiring less liquid to cook your food, shortening the cooking time without loss of valuable nutrients and flavor. The steam permeates into the foods, tenderizing it, infusing it with flavor, preserving nutrients, color, texture, and juices, and cooking much faster. What are the benefits of afghan pressure cooking. Afghan pressure cooking can reduce normal cooking times by as much as half. Cooks faster and saves on fuel use/consumption. Economical foods such as legumes (lentils, dried peas, and beans) and tough cuts of meat can be cooked to perfection in a fraction of the normal time. Scientific literature indicates that certain nutritive elements such as proteins and vitamins are better retained by pressure cooking. Steaming is ideal for low-calorie, low-fat cooking. The higher temperature while pressure cooking gives more hygienic food. Closed cooking in super-heated steam may better enhance the natural flavors of the foods – producing delicious tasting foods. A wide range of foods, whether parts of recipes or entire meals, can be cooked in your afghan pressure cooker. What is the maximum quantity of food that can be cooked in a pressure cooker. The cooking capacity in a pressure cooker is less than its full volume. The pressure cooker body should never be filled more than two-thirds of it’s capacity. This is to safeguard against blocking the steam valve and to leave enough space to allow steam to circulate. Filling beyond a certain level increases the chance of food clogging the steam valve. Certain foods, however, such as soups and other liquid foods, foods such as lentils and rice which expand during cooking should not be loaded more than half the capacity of the cooker body. How do you recognize full operating pressure in the afghan pressure cooker. After about 5 minutes after placing the pressure cooker on the heat source, there will be at first a very low hissing sound of steam from the pressure relief valves. Then steam starts releasing out of the pressure relief valves slightly more and keeps increasing until the escape of steam reaches a constant level of intensity. The cooker is now at full operating pressure. This is the point at which to reduce heat and start timing the recipe. What does a pressure cooker cook really well what types of food are better cooked in a pressure cooker than by any other way. Tastes are so individual that it is hard to generalize. However, most people who know the advantages of pressure cooking agree that pressure cooking produces not only a time saving but a flavor enhancement in many different foods. For example, stocks and most soups; stews; all varieties of beans and lentils; vegetables such as potatoes, broccoli, corn on the cob, beets, carrots, and asparagus; many different types of fish and poultry. You should try out some of them for yourself. The afghan pressure cooker, when i reduce heat once full pressure is reached, how do i know whether to turn to low or medium how do i tell the right heat setting to maintain pressure. When cooking in the afghan pressure cooker, the correct heat setting to maintain pressure on reduced heat will vary with the type and quantity of food. Along with your heat sources, stove, or campfire. The heat setting should be such that you can hear a low, gentle, and steady sound of escape of steam from the pressure relief valves. This sound is considerably less than the sound of the escape of steam on high heat. Adjust the heat level as necessary to maintain the low, gentle, and steady sound of escape of steam. Please remember that, particularly on electric heat, it may take some time for heat level adjustments to have steam escape. You will find the correct heat settings and adjustments, after a bit of practice, if any are required. Can i cook my own recipes in the afghan pressure cooker. Yes first, get familiar with an afghan pressure cooker. You may then adapt your own recipe. The three important things to determine: the amount of liquid, the cooking time, and the method of cooling the cooker. Use a similar recipe for an instant pot or any other electric pressure cookers. On which heat source may the afghan pressure cookers be used. Afghan pressure cookers suitable for use on domestic/camping gas flames, kerosene stoves, ceramic and halogen cooktops, electric cooktops, hot wood or coal fires provided in direct contact with hot coals as well.
