okra in the pressure cooker

alc | Aug 12, 2012 02:54 PM

I attempted to cook an okra stew in the pressure cooker and ended up with a tasteless, slimey mess. Here's what I did: I sauteed some mustard and cumin seeds in oil briefly and added a chopped onion and cooked it down a bit. I stirred in a drained can of beans and stirred in a bit of curry powder. I added about a shot's worth of almond milk. Then I put in the okra and topped it with some chopped tomatos. When it didn't come up to pressure I added about 1/4 cup of water. I cooked at pressure for 2 1/2 minutes. I ended up with slimey glop. It did seem to be taking a long time to come up to pressure so perhaps it all just over-cooked. I don't understand why that happened, however, as my Kuhn R generally doesn't require more liquid than that to come up and the pc is otherwise functioning so I figure the gasket is ok. (I cooked something else in it today without a problem.) Ideas? I've only cooked okra a few times before ever and this was my first time trying it in the pc.
