This recipe makes perfectly fluffy coconut rice. Perfect as a simple side dish to add some starch to your meals. Even better, this dish is so easy to make, and requires no babysitting! No need to check on this dish or stir it at all. Just add all the ingredients to your pressure cooker or instant pot. Then close the lid, set your timer, and let your appliance do the rest!
I only recently discovered the instant pot, and I’m so glad I did. It really makes cooking a breeze. The usual complaint I hear is that it doesn’t really increase cooking time, or at least not by much. But I love using this appliance, not for the speed, but for the convenience of walking away. I can set it and forget it which leaves me with more time to make other dishes, or play with the kids!
I find rice is something pretty easy to mess up. It’s often either under cooked and crunchy or over cooked and mushy. But by following these measurements exactly, this recipe works for me every time. The result is perfectly fluffy, restaurant quality coconut rice.
