As I am cooking a variant of an Indian dish this night. But it seems my sous chef is not feeling well, so I will also need to assume to role rice washer and cooker.
I’ll use a Basmati rice for this, wash EXTREMELY well, and thence take for a spin in my InstaPot. I’ll be going for a soft rice, so if you prefer your rice less soft, either do not rice or reduce the amount of liquid. (reduce by ~ 6 tbsp for 2 cups of rice)
Basmati is a variety of long, slender-grained aromatic rice which is traditionally from the Indian subcontinent. As of 2014, India exported 65% of the overseas basmati rice market, while Pakistan accounted for the remainder, according to the Indian state-run Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority. However, many countries use domestically grown basmati rice crops.
Whilst many ways of cooking rice are touted, boiling, steaming, etc. I do not have the time. One might say the pressure is on. Thence this will be a pressure cooked side dish.
Basmati Rice in InstaPot
- 420 grams basmati rice rinsed until the water runs clear
- 600 ml water or unsalted veggie stock
- In a strainer, rinse the rice in cold water until the water runs clear. DRAIN WELL
- Add the rice and water to the instapot
- Close lid and pressure cook on manual at High Pressure for 6 minutes. Turn off the heat and do 10 minutes Natural Release. Release the remaining pressure and open the lid carefully.
- Fluff the rice and serve
