Jacky is a huge fan of coconut-anything from fresh coconut to coconut water, coconut flakes, to coconut milk.

If you walk into our kitchen and open our cabinets, you’ll be sure to find fully stocked coconut-goodies. Ok! At least I try to!! 😛

You win a man’s heart through his stomach, right? #bestwifeaward

So, we were thrilled to test this Instant Pot Coconut Rice Recipe with our Instant Pot Thai Green Curry Chicken!

Easy Instant Pot Coconut Rice Recipe with sweet aroma & creamy flavors. Perfect pressure cooker side dish to spicy, bold Asian food.

Coconut rice is awesome because it’s simple and easy to make.

Though it looks just like the regular plain white rice, but once you lean close…

Oh~ You’ll be captivated by the irresistible sweet & soothing aroma.

It. Smells. AMAZING!

I couldn’t help but take big deep sniffs like a 3rd grader addicted to sniffing scratch n’ sniff stickers!

And your taste buds will be pleasantly surprised by the al dente Jasmine rice infused with the deliciously creamy flavors. It will linger in your mouth and refresh your breath like a fresh mint.

Variations of Coconut Rice are popular in South and Southeast Asian cultures such as Burma, Indonesia, Thailand, and India, as well as Caribbean cultures such as Panama and Puerto Rico.

Let’s make us some Instant Pot Coconut Rice!!

Ingredients for Instant Pot Coconut Rice


Instant Pot Coconut Rice Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup (230g) Jasmine rice

Coconut Milk Mixture:

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.

Rinse Rice


Rinse rice under cold tap water until clear. Drain well.

Step 2
Create Coconut Milk Mixture

Ingredients & Tools

½ cup (125ml) 100% pure coconut milk
¾ cup (188ml) Homemade unsalted chicken stock
¼ – ½ teaspoon Fine sea salt/table salt

In a 2 cups (500ml) glass measuring cup, mix ¼ – ½ tsp fine sea salt, ½ cup (125ml) unsweetened coconut milk, and ¾ cup (188ml) homemade unsalted chicken stock together. Mix well.

Pro Tip: We enjoy al dente rice with a chew, so if you prefer softer rice, use more unsalted chicken stock (add in ¼ cup intervals) and adjust accordingly.

Step 3
Pressure Cook Coconut Rice

Ingredients & Tools

1 cup (230g) Jasmine rice
Coconut milk mixture

Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker

Place 1 cup (230g) of Jasmine rice into the pressure cooker.
