    Nowhere does it say how long it takes to have the pressure released by itself naturally. I timed this for the 10 minutes cooking not thinking that it would be taking 20 minutes for the release of pressure by itself.

    Thanks for the recipe. I added some finely chopped fresh mango to this after it was done cooking and had cooled somewhat. It was very good.

    I cooked it 10 mins ar presure, then just 3 mins of natural release, and let the rest of the steam escape after that. Turned out great.
