How to make jasmine rice in the Instant Pot?
Instant pot is a magic pot. You don’t need to watch the pot or stir the rice. Just soak and cook.
I will definitely advise to soak rice for 30-50 minutes before adding to the pot. Soaking will reduce the cooking time by 20 percent and you will get more flavorful and aromatic rice. Remember: the longer you cook your rice the less aromatic it will be. Wanna get popcorn-like aroma? Always soak your rice.
I also recommend to rinse jasmine rice before cooking. It will keep the rice from sticking together, foaming up and you will get perfectly separate grains.
To achieve a deeper flavor, use chicken or vegetable broth for soaking and boiling.
I advise to saute rice in ghee or butter in Instant Pot 1-2 minutes before adding the stock/ water and then pressure cook.
Ratio of water to rice for Instant Pot
The ratio is one to one (1:1), so if you plan to cook 2 cups of jasmine rice, you will need 2 cups of water/ broth. For every 1 cup of rice, use 1 cup of water/ broth.
- 1 cup of rice+ 1 cup of water.
- 2 cups of rice+ 2 cups of water.
- 3 cups of rice+ 3 cups of water.
- 4 cups of rice+ 4 cups of water.
- 5 cups of rice+ 5 cups of water.
