Instant Pot Method:
Firstly wash and clean the potatoes with water.Add water into the instant pot insert.Place the trivet and then arrange the potatoes.I have used extra-large Russet Potatoes here.
Close the lid on the pot, and turn pressure valve to SEALING position.Set the pot to MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK (High Pressure) andSet timer to 3 minutes for diced potatoes ,1 inch ORSet timer to 5 minute for small/baby potatoes ORSet timer to 6 minute for medium potatoes ORSet timer to 10 minute for large potatoes ORSet timer to 12 minute for extra-large potatoes OR
Once the instant pot beeps, Wait for the pressure to release naturally and then open the lid.Check the doneness of potatoes by inserting a knife or fork in the center.
Peel the skin and use right away Or store without peeling in the refrigerator for later use.
Note: These times mentioned will result in perfectly cooked/boiled potatoes, if you want the potatoes more soft and mushy consistency then add 2 more minutes of pressure cooking.
