Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine water, rice and salt in a programmable pressure multicooker (such as an Instant Pot; times, instructions and settings may vary according to cooker brand or model). Cover the cooker and lock the lid in place. Turn the steam release handle to Sealing position. Select High pressure for 20 minutes. (It will take about 10 minutes for the cooker to come up to pressure before cooking begins.)

  • When the cooking is complete, let the pressure release naturally. (This will take about 10 minutes.)


To make ahead: Refrigerate cooled rice for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 6 months.
