Black Bean soup in InstaPot

imageBlack bean and potato soup in #instapot – sautéed onion, tomato and potato for a min and added a can of Trader Joe’s organic black beans; added salt, red chili 🌶 powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, cloves, cinnamon and cardamom powder, pinch of dhania powder and cooked in manual mode for 10 min. I really relished the flavors of all the spices 😋😋 added the spaghetti to it and it tasted so good 😊 especially the potato is cooked very perfectly 👌🏻 kind of very nostalgic feelingimage
