Jasmine Rice [Instant Pot Pressure Cooker]

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.

Jasmine Rice

2 cups Jasmine Rice
2 cups water
1/2 t garlic salt
1/4 t black pepper

Add water, rice and seasonings to Instant Pot (IP). 

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!

  1. With this recommendation I bought two, one for me and one for a gift. In my experience a pressure cooker gets about twice as much flavor and gelatin than simply a stock pot. This means that for the same flavor you can make twice as much soup. The higher temperature does not reduce the jelling at all. So far I have tried both the bones from a Christmas Prime Rib, and raw bones from a chicken.
    Nice sharing!

  2. Jasmine rice is one of my most favorite blog that I like to visit on regular basis. Today I was actually wondering for some information related to electric pressure cooker parts before getting one for me.
