Today we have another quick and easy recipe that everyone with an Instant Pot should have in their reservoir. Easy Instant Pot Rice.
Now I have tried this with jasmine, brown rice, and white rice. So I cannot guarantee that it will be the same for all other kinds. But the ratio I find works the best is a 1/1. Equal amount of water and rice.
Also before you cook the rice, be sure to rinse it multiple times, until the cloudiness you can see is gone, I usually rinse my 4-5 times, straining it through a strainer each time, it help prevent the rice from getting sticky and mushy.
What we must remember is that liquid measuring cup and dry measuring cups are not exactly the same measurement. A reasoning why people tend to like weighing their ingredients more, accuracy. So the trick I learned here is to measure the rice with the dry measure, then use the same measuring tool for the liquid, then add a little more, about a “splash.”
Now I also like my rice a bit less firm, so I add probably about a tablespoon or two more of water, but it is personal preference. The one to one ratio makes perfect rice every time as well. You just have to experiment with your preference.
So you will put the Instant Pot on HIGH pressure for 3 minutes, let it natural release for 10, then finish releasing the rest of the pressure. Let it cool just a few minutes before serving.
I also tend to store my rice while still warm, I find the condensation it creates helps to keep the rice from drying out too much in the fridge.
