    You need a cup of water for an instant pot recipe. I will try that but I’m wondering if it will be too diluted.

      the pressure cooker creates a lot of steam and vapor so it adds “water’ to the recipe. Plus there is the soy sauce and other condiments that are also liquids. You can try with one cup but this one works like this, I have tested it many times
