Easy to cook adzuki beans

lastZZ | Sep 22, 201602:45 PM    

We have an Indian supermarket nearby. I bought chickpeas there because I figured these beans would not be stale due to this kind of mkt having lots of turnover. But the 24 hours soaked chickpeas were highly resistant and needed strong pressure cooking to soften them to edibility. They also had azuki beans which are a Japanese item. I figured I would try my luck with them. 12 hours soaking and 45 minutes cooking got them nice and soft. What a great rich bean. I'll be cooking them more often. Azukis go well cooked with a little onion, celery, ginger.
