  • Rinse out Jasmine rice in a fine mesh sieve and drain.
  • Place rice and water in Instant Pot  inner pot. Stir to combine.
  • Cook on ‘Manual’ (or 'Pressure Cook') mode for 4 minutes. Make sure steam release handle is in the 'Sealing' position.
  • Let the rice stay in ‘Keep Warm’ mode for 10 minutes after cooking is complete.
  • Release remaining steam to depressurize Instant Pot, or allow pressure to release naturally.
  • Open Instant Pot and fluff rice with fork before serving.



  • To use the pot-in-pot method (See Instant Pot Pot-in-Pot Method) and cook a smaller quantity of Jasmine rice, just use the ratios and timings in this recipe (Rice:Water – 1:1.25 and cook on ‘Manual’ or 'Pressure Cook' setting for 4 minutes.)
  • To adjust the quantities, keep the rice to water ratio of 1:1.25.
  • Be sure to use the same cup for measuring both rice and water.
* Do not overfill your pot with rice, i.e. past 1/2.
