Jasmine rice in the Instant Pot is the perfect recipe for anyone new to pressure cooking. You’ll get perfect results every time and you’ll love that you don’t need to babysit a pot on the stove.
Jasmine rice has a slightly sweet taste and is a bit sticky no matter how you cook it. It’s perfect with dishes like Air Fryer Orange Chicken, Instant Pot Teriyaki Beef, Air Fryer Tofu, Instant Pot Beef Tips and Gravy, Baked Chicken Teriyaki, or Instant Pot Orange Chicken.
How Long Do You Cook Jasmine Rice in the Instant Pot?
Depending on how you like your rice, 4-6 minutes works best. If you like firmer rice, 4 minutes is perfect. Want something a little softer, then 6 minutes is your best bet. I find 5 minutes makes the perfect texture every single time.
What is the Ratio of Water to Rice For Jasmine Rice?
Keep a 1:1 ratio of rice to liquid. For every 1 cup of rice you use, you’ll need 1 cup of broth or water. No matter how long you cook it, and how much rice you make, the ratio stays the same.
Pot in Pot Rice Method
The pot in pot cooking method produces the same texture as cooking the rice directly in the Instant Pot. But a side benefit is that it’s cooked in a serving dish that you can put directly on the table (along with a hot pad/trivet).
Place 3 cups of water in the insert of your Instant Pot and add the trivet. Mix your rice, water/broth, and salt in a glass bowl.
Pro Tips/Recipe Notes
- Cook time will remain the same no matter how much rice you make.
- Each cup of uncooked rice will yield three cups of cooked rice.
- With a stainless steel Instant Pot insert, some rice will stick to the bottom and sides after cooking. Simply soak the insert in warm water for a bit and then clean as usual.
- I love using broth/stock in place of water. Check out these posts on How to Make Chicken Bone Broth, Turkey Bone Broth, and Where to Buy Bone Broth for inspiration.
- Make sure to turn the Instant Pot off once it has finished cooking. This will prevent the rice in the pot from scorching while you wait for the pot to depressurize.
