COOKING BROWN RICE
Brown rice is different from white rice not only in color. It is nuttier and chewier, it takes longer to cook it than white rice, about 15 minutes in an Instant Pot. Those who don’t have an Instant Pot, will think it’s really fast! Yes, it is. However, my Instant Pot Jasmine rice cooks in 4 minutes.
WATER TO BROWN RICE RATIO
The water to rice ratio is different too. Brown rice has the outer high-fiber bran and needs more water.
2 cups of rice =2 ½ cup of water
4 cups of rice= 5 cups of water
Do you have to soak brown rice before cooking in Instant Pot?
I would definitely recommend to soak brown rice to speed up the cooking process. This recipe calls for soaked brown rice. Put rice into a large bowl and cover with water, ratio 1: 2 (1 cup of rice= 2 cups of water). Soak at room temperature for 1 hour, then drain and rinse.
If you wish to skip this step, increase the cooking time to 20 minutes.
