Cook Jasmine rice in the instant pot. So quick! It’s fast and easy, and I’ll show you how many cups of water per cup of jasmine rice.
Jasmine Rice (Instant Pot )
How many rice cookers do you have at home? If you’re a Filipino, I am guessing you got three of them in different sizes. Or am I just a crazy Filipina who hoards rice cookers? And to make it even crazier, I got an Instant pot duo that can cook rice as well. One time, I even cook rice simultaneously, using a rice cooker and the instant pot at the same time to compare which one cooks faster. And yes, an Instant pot gets done more quickly than a rice cooker.
WHAT BRAND OF INSTANT POT DO I USE
I want to emphasize each instant pot is different, and some settings may not be on the instant pot you got. In my case, I am using Instant Pot Duo Crisp 11-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker with Air Fryer Lid, 8 Quart. This Instant pot doesn’t have the rice setting, so I am using the pressure cooker setting.
