Learn how to cook Asian-approved Perfect Instant Pot Calrose Rice (Pressure Cooker Calrose Rice). No more mushy, gooey, or hard medium grain Japanese Calrose rice! Super easy to make in less than 30 mins!! 😀
As my dad, the rice man, always says “I can’t live without rice!”
Rice is in our blood.
That’s why we started our site with the good old Jasmine Rice Recipe.
You might call us crazy.
We must admit we’re a little picky & teeny bit particular about our rice – blame it all on our Asian genes. ?
The meal just doesn’t feel right if the rice is off balance.
If you’ve been following our pressure cooking journey (thank you!!), we’ve been having lots of fun experimenting some of the most popular types of rice – Jasmine rice, Brown rice, Basmati rice, Sticky rice, and Arborio rice.
So, how can we miss one of our favorite go-to rice – Calrose Rice!
Some might say, “it’s just rice! How complicated can it be? Just press the rice button, you’re all set…”
As easy as it looks, there’s no one-size-fits-all method to making perfect Pressure Cooker Rice, at least not in our books.
Perfecting rice especially Instant Pot Rice that sticks, can get a little tricky.
To us, finding the perfect Water to Rice Ratio is like hunting for the Golden Key that opens the Treasure Box of Perfect Rice.
So, time for another Instant Pot Rice Experiment!! 😀
