Close the lid and turn the valve so that it says "sealing." Use the Pressure Cooker/Manual mode to set the timer for 4 minutes on HIGH pressure.

Let the Instant Pot do a natural pressure release for 20 minutes after the cooking time is over. This means don't touch it, take the lid off, or do a manual pressure release.

After the natural release, switch the valve to'venting' to release pressure and steam. Open the Instant Pot cover and stir well to blend.
