    • one whistle is fine. Some times, the nature of the potato may take little more time to cook. IF you feel it is too raw and then you give on more whistle. Or another option is to wash them and transfer to a vessel and keep it inside the cooker and cook for 3 whistles. Do not add any water to the potatoes. Just sprinkle little if needed. Else the moisture of the washed potatoes are fine.
