Instant Pot Jasmine Rice
Jasmine Rice is my FAVE rice!
The fragrance that comes from Jasmine Rice just makes me happy.
Something else that makes me happy – how EASY it is to make perfect Jasmine Rice in the Instant Pot!
Normally, I suck at cooking rice, by the way. Undercooking, overcooked, straight mushy, burnt on the bottom, not enough water… whatever mistake you can make cooking rice, I make it. It’s sad because I consider myself a decent cook. Rice is not my forte.
Knowing the Instant Pot can whip up some perfectly cooked rice is in itself enough reason to buy one, seriously.
Close lid on IP and and turn vent know to “Sealing”. Press “Manual” button and use “+/-“ buttons to adjust cook time to 3-5 minutes. IP will take 5-10 minutes to pressurize then cook time will start.
Why the cook time range? It depends how you like your rice. Less cook time results in a slightly al dente finish. 5 minutes is cooked through.
When complete, IP will beep and automatically change to Keep Warm setting. Press “Keep Warm/Off” to then off. Cover vent with a towel, and Turn vent knob to “Venting” to all remain pressure to quickly release (QPR). Open lid and enjoy the view! Simply use a fork to fluff rice (don’t use a bulky spoon or you’ll smoosh (yes, smoosh) your rice together – avoid that, use a good ole fork.
Serve immediately, or cool and save for later – totally freezable!
