Instant Pot Sticky Rice has never been so easy. Jasmine rice and water are the only 2 ingredients you need for this favorite.
Raise your hand if the sticky rice you get from Chinese take-out is your jam! I’m over here raising both hands for this Instant Pot Sticky Rice you can make at home!
You guys I could eat sticky rice all day every day! Not minute rice, not regular rice but real sticky rice. The kind I could only get with Chinese take-out till I finally mastered this recipe!
Instant Pot Sticky Rice
I have only ever used Jasmine rice for this recipe so I can’t speak to how well other types of rice work. Jasmine has a sweeter taste and is a stickier grain.
A tad bit of trial and error led me to a few tips:
- Rinse Your Rice
- Start with a cold Instant Pot
- Don’t stir it before you cook it
- Always use LOW PRESSURE
The LOW PRESSURE is key, otherwise, you get the stupid BURN message. It took me a bit to figure that out to be honest, I almost threw my Instant Pot across the kitchen one time!
Seriously just typing this post out has me craving this! I don’t add any salt while it’s cooking because we usually serve it with soy sauce or add salt at the table.
I love to serve this with my County Fair Pork Kabobs, it’s perfect and makes for an easy meal!
Instant Pot Sticky Rice
- Instant Pot
- 2 cups Jasmine rice
- 2 cups water
- Measure out your 2 cups of Jasmine rice and rinse it. Using a bowl or a strainer rinse the rice until the water runs clear.
- Making sure your Instant Pot is cold add the 2 cups of water, then add the 2 cups of rinsed rice - don't stir but make sure the rice is all under the water.
- Put on the Instant Pot lid and move the knob to seal. Switch from HIGH pressure to LOW pressure and set the timer for 7 minutes.
- Once your 7 minutes is up allow to natural release for 10 minutes, then turn the knob to unseal and release the remaining pressure - carefully remove the lid and fluff rice with a fork to serve.
