The marinade sauces has enough salt and that will be more than enough. so NO SALT. Cover the cooker and cook for 6 minutes in medium heat. You should get about 6 whistles. Switch off the flame after 6 whistles and allow it to rest for 10 minutes before opening. Let the pressure from the cooker release manually.
