Instant Pot Coconut Rice

Basmati rice

What You Need:

Coconut milk


Rinse the rice


Place the rice in a medium bowl and cover it with cold water. Stir gently with a spoon to release excess starch then drain the water.

Rinse again (4th rinse)


Repeat this process 2-3 more times until the water becomes mostly clear.  This is especially  important for coconut rice so the cooked rice isn’t gummy from excess starch.

Pressure cook


Add the rice, coconut milk, water and salt to the Instant Pot and mix. Pressure cook for 3 minutes then natural release (do nothing) for 10 minutes. Open the lid and fluff with a fork.
