    Should green gram be soaked and boioed or it can be boiled just like that with water.

      Hi!
      If you are soaking in water or dry roasting before pressure cooking, it helps to cook faster. So you have to adjust the cooking time accordingly, else it may turn mushy.
      By the way, thanks for visiting my blog!
