U need not pressure cook potatoes.Just cook in a pan with enough water till it is cooked. U can also straight away peel the potato cut into cubes and put it along with onions,it will take longer to cook.

I pressure cook it to reduce cooking time and like it lil mashed up :). I donno why the tastiest part is what is stuck in the pan:)

Will u let me know how it is after trying.
