Coconut Rice: unsweetened coconut milk used in this recipe is different from the refrigerated coconut milk for drinking. Amount of Salt: If you're enjoying the coconut rice with strong-flavored dishes, use ¼ tsp of salt. But, if you're enjoying it on its own or with light flavors, use ½ tsp of salt to further enhance the flavors. Anything over ½ tsp of salt will be too salty.Softer Rice: use more unsalted chicken stock (add in ¼ cup intervals) and adjust accordingly.*Rate the Recipe: If you've tried the recipe, don't forget to Rate the Recipe in the Comments Section.

Instant Pot Coconut Rice Step-by-Step Cooking Guide
Ingredients for Instant Pot Coconut Rice
Coconut Milk Mixture:
100% Unsweetened Coconut Milk – this is the best tasting one out of the 4 brands we tried while developing recipes. It’s not diluted, no additives, stabilizers, thickeners, gums, or preservatives.
Pro Tip #1: we also tested the coconut rice recipe with this more accessible & cheaper unsweetened coconut milk from the same brand. It also tasted delicious (totally unbiased 😛 ).
Take note that both of these unsweetened coconut milk are different from the refrigerated coconut milk for drinking. 🙂
Pro Tip #2: If you’re enjoying this Instant Pot Coconut Rice with strong-flavored dishes, use ¼ tsp of salt. But, if you’re enjoying it on it’s own or with light flavors, use ½ tsp of salt to further enhance the flavors and elevate the dish! Anything over ½ tsp of salt would be too salty, so be careful.
