As promised when I shared the sweet chili chicken stir fry recipe, here’s the recipe for Instant Pot jasmine rice! Jasmine rice is one of my absolute favorite things. It has the best flavor and it’s perfect with any type of stir fry recipe. Or completely by itself. With butter.

There aren’t many things better than buttered rice, am I right?

It’s so easy to make jasmine rice in your pressure cooker. As you all probably already know, I have an Instant Pot, but this will work in any type of electric pressure cooker.

I made three cups of rice (meaning I used three cups of dry rice), but you could also do this with as little as 1 cup of dry rice. The ratio is one to one (1:1), so it’s very easy to remember! I used water for the liquid, but you could also use broth. I love the flavor of the jasmine rice so I like it to shine through on its own. I did add a little oil to help prevent the rice from sticking together. I chose coconut oil because it complements the flavor of the rice so well, but you could use any type of oil you like, or butter. And don’t forget salt to bring out the flavors of the rice, especially if you’re cooking in water.

One important step to remember when cooking rice in a pressure cooker is to rinse your rice first. This will keep it from foaming up too much and sputtering out the valve, making a huge mess (any Instant Pot owners know what I’m talking about here?).

FAQs of making Instant Pot Jasmine Rice:

  • What is the cook time or how long do you cook Jasmine rice in the pressure cooker? Jasmine rice cooks in a pressure cooker in 5 minutes on high with a 10 minute natural release.
  • What is the rice to water ratio for cooking rice in the Instant Pot? You want to use a 1:1 ratio of rice to water, so for every 1 cup of rice, you’ll use 1 cup of water (or broth).
  • What setting do I use? I almost always just do a manual setting, but I’m sure your rice setting will work too – just set the time for the amount of time directed in the recipe.
