Servings 2 - 4
Total Time 15 mins


  • 1 cup (230g) Jasmine rice
  • 1 cup (250ml) cold 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. Be sure to drain really well.
  • Pressure Cook Rice: Add 1 cup (230g) rice and 1 cup (250ml) cold water in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
    Close the lid, turn Venting Knob to Sealing Position. Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 3 minutes, then Natural Release for 10 minutes. Turn Venting Knob to Venting position to release the remaining pressure. Open the lid quickly.
  • Optional Seasoning: Add salt to the rice for seasoning.
  • Fluff & Serve: Fluff rice with a fork, then serve warm. Enjoy~


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.
