So guys. Are you ready for an undemanding, luscious, most fantastic recipe ever?

Yes? Great! Because today, I have a super easy Indian style Instant Pot Black Beans recipe that totally checks all the boxes.

What sort of black beans do I need?

Fresh dried black beans – the fresher the better. Beans that are older than a year can take much longer to cook and have a weird after taste. I prefer to buy beans from a store where you know turnover is fairly high, Walmart for instance.

Some folks feel the need to soak beans, however I’m a not really a pre-soaker. I often tend to forget to soak the beans overnight. The cooking time varies depending if the beans have been soaked or not.

What do I need to make Instant Pot Black Beans?

An Instant Pot of course.

Oil, and then..…we have the spices, asafoetida, dried bay leaf, kashmiri chili powder, water, ground cumin, ground fennel,  ground ginger and salt.
