Although if you are cooking in instant pot, you don’t require pre-soaking. But pre-soaking the beans makes them easier to digest, and our bodies can absorb more nutrition.Pre-soaking also helps in reducing the gassiness. You can just replace the dried beans with pre-soaked beans and reduce the cooking time to 8 minutes. Keep the remaining process same as mentioned in the recipe.
