  • 1 cup (230g) Jasmine rice
  • 1 cup (250ml) water
  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon fine sea salt or table salt optional


  • Rinse Rice: Rinse rice under cold water by gently scrubbing the rice with your fingertips in a circling motion. Pour out the milky water, and continue to rinse until water is clear. Drain well.
  • Pressure Cook Rice: Add rice and water to Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Close the lid. Cook at High Pressure for 3 minutes, then Natural Release for 10 minutes. Release remaining pressure, then open the lid quickly.
  • Optional Seasoning: Add salt to the rice for seasoning.
  • Fluff & Serve: Fluff with a fork and serve warm.


If you use the rice measuring cup that came with the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker to measure the rice, remember to use the same measuring cup to measure the water as 1 rice measuring cup = 180 ml of rice.
