    This was very good. However DO NOT stir to combine ingredients. Do exactly as video shows. I put in the ingredients and stirred then cooked and it took forever to pressurize then it said burn on it lol. It was not burnt but was stickin to bottom. So i learnt and will NOT mix next time lol. So nummy.
