  • The excess water will drain to the 2nd compartment and eventually get collected in the last compartment.
  • Close the lid tightly and place in a warm place for about 2 days.
  • After day one just run your fingers to re toss the beans and if you think it’s too dry , then add few tablespoons of water.
