Soup: Lotus Roots

Boiled the above ingredients in a pot or crook pot for approximately 3 hours.  Since peanuts takes a longer time to soften, pre-soaked them for at least 6 hours to reduce cooking time.

    3 hours!!! That’s a long time.
    Can we cook in a pressure cooker? How long would that take?

    The Queen says:  Never rush your soup.  You should simmer them on slow fire up to 3 hours or more for better taste.  Why don’t you use a slow cooker?  If you are making peanut dessert then can use the pressure cooker.  That should take about 30 minutes to soften but it all depends on how hard is the nuts.

    I cook this too but minus the cuttle fish. Doesn’t it give the soup a kind of fishy taste?
