Next to an air fryer, a pressure cooker is a must-have in every kitchen. 

Food blogger Landi Govender is sharing the soji recipe she made in her all-in-one slow/pressure cooker.  

She says her husband was not convinced that she could make a decadent traditional soji in her cooker, but she proved him wrong. 

"I took my new Philips all-in-one cooker for a spin this week and the first recipe on my list was a decadent traditional soji. My husband was a little stunned when I told him how I plan on pressure cooking soji," she writes.
