Can you give the recipe for a large crowd:)
You can easily double this recipe. Just add maybe 2 minutes to the cook time.
So you used 3 potatoes can I use 6-9 or do you think in order to cover with water would be too high in the pressure cooker. Thanks!
Oh yes, especially if you have a larger model! It also depends on the size of the potatoes of course.
