Add little more water in the pressure cooker than as used to boil the grains in microwave above. Now close the pressure cooker and place it on the oven top on medium heat. The steamed grains would be ready in one whistle from the cooker! Let the pressure be released of the cooker before you open it. After you open the pressure cooker allow the grains to cool.
