meat curry in a pressure cooker?

fadista | Jan 15, 2011 11:32 PM

Friends over for dinner on Monday, and I'm going to combine two firsts: (1) cooking meat [goat, on the bone, Indian style] curry, (2) in a pressure cooker.

I'm not sure why I've never cooked goat - it just hasn't happened. I've certainly eaten lots. Baaaaa.

I'm not sure why I've never used my pressure cooker. Maybe I did try it once, and the benefits weren't obvious, but cleaning was a pain.

Anyway, here I am. What is the secret to cooking curry in a pressure cooker? Will it blow up?

I have done some research. My pressure cooker is a western model - a F*GOR - but all the Indian pressure cooking recipes I've found measure time in "number of whistles" which I don't think applies, as my pressure cooker lacks the familiar whistle on the top.

Help!

(As an aside, does a pressure cooker offer any quality benefits over other methods of cooking? I know it's supposed to be faster, but that is somewhat offset by the cleaning hassle.)
