The Instant Pot has taken the cooking world by storm, but does this mean that traditional methods are no longer required? This recipe will show you how to make coconut Jasmine rice using an electric pressure cooker like the Instant Pot.
There are so many ways to make rice, and with the Instant Pot, you don’t even need a rice cooker anymore. It’s easy, and it’s delicious!
Ingredients Needed For Instant Pot Coconut Jasmine Rice
- Jasmine Rice
- Unsweetened Coconut Milk
How To Make Instant Pot Coconut Jasmine Rice
Mix the rice, coconut milk, sugar, salt, and water in the Instant Pot bowl. Mix well.
Place the lid on top, and make sure it’s in the sealing position. Set manual high pressure for 3 minutes, then when the time is up, do a natural release. When all of the pressure in the Instant Pot is released, open the lid, and mix well.
HOW TO AVOID THE INSTANT POT BURN NOTICE WHEN MAKING RICE
I love this coconut rice recipe because it’s a one-pot meal. There is no need for extra dishes or pots, and you can have hot cooked fluffy grains in under 30 minutes! Plus, there are so many tasty options to customize your bowl with ingredients like curry paste, fish sauce (or soy sauce), green onions/scallions as well if desired – really whatever fills up that space inside of YOU!!!
This recipe will work in either a 3 quart, 6 quarts, or even the new Duo Evo Plus. The only reason you would get the burn notice is that something is sticking on the bottom of the Instant Pot. Mix well before each step, and you will not get the burn notice.
WHAT IS THE BEST COCONUT MILK?
The most confusing part of cooking is choosing the right ingredients. And when it comes to coconut milk, there are so many options out there that you might not know which one will work best for your recipe.
WHAT IS THE BEST RICE FOR THIS DISH?
I always make this recipe with Jasmine rice because it’s my favorite. However, you can use long-grain brown or white rice and get great results without changing the cooking time!
If you do wish to use brown rice, you would need to increase the cooking time.
CAN I MAKE AHEAD AND REHEAT THE COCONUT RICE?
Coconut Rice is delicious and nutritious, but the real question on your mind might be whether or not it’ll last for more than 1 day. The answer: Yes! Coconut rice can easily stay fresh in an airtight container at room temperature (or fridge) for 3-5 days with no signs of spoilage or molding—it’s that good!
