Step 1: Choosing the right rice

Start by choosing the right rice, whether it is Basmati, Jasmine or long grain rice. Follow your recipe, use the rice as desired and add the correct amount of water (usually 1:2 ratio).

Rinse the rice thoroughly under cold water to remove excess starch and prevent sticky rice. This ultimately results in a light structure and the perfect rice.

Place the washed rice in the Instant Pot and add the appropriate amount of water, along with a pinch of salt for flavor.

Step 4: Choose the correct setting

Choose the “rice” setting on the Instant Pot. If your multicooker does not have this pre-programmed setting, manually increase the pressure to high and set the timer to the recommended cooking time for your chosen rice (depending on the type).

Step 6: Let the rice rest

Once cooking is complete, let the rice rest for a while with the lid on the Instant Pot . This ensures that the rice absorbs the remaining steam for the perfect texture.

Step 7: Fluff and serve

Use a fork to gently fluff the rice and prevent the grains from sticking together. Serve the fluffed rice as a side dish or as a base for your favorite dishes.
