What is 'normal cooking" in a pressure cooker?

I recently bought a Presto pressure cooker.

One term (or technique) in the recipes has me confused: "normal cooking"
Here's the context. Several recipes say (for example):
  • step 2: cover, set control at 15 and cook for 45 minutes after control jiggles
  • step 3: cook normally for 5 minutes, then place under faucet
  • step 4: add remaining ingredients
  • step 5: cover, set control a 15 and cook for 5-8 minutes after control jiggles. Reduce pressure instantly.
What I've been doing is after the 45 minute cook time , is take the pot off the burner, wait 5 mintues and then cool the pot under running water to relieve the pressure so I can open the pot in order to add the remaining ingredients.

Is this the the right technique?
or does "cook normally" mean something else?

I suspect these recipes were written by someone in Bangladesh. (or is that non-PC? pun intended)

TIA,
Squanto

It should read "cool" not "cook." Looks like a typo in the manual; I have the same pressure cooker. You have been doing it the right way!!

THAT makes sense!
What a dirty thing to do to a dyslectic like me. :-)
