You can start boiling azuki( red beans) immediately after washing them. If you use donabe(pots made of a special clay), you can turn the heat off and let it stand. It saves time using fire and therefore eco-friendly and also reduces the risk of azuki(red beans)’s skin ripped in comparison with boiling them from start to finish.
