Make this quick and easy sticky rice in instant pot in under 30 minutes with just 2 ingredients. Once you will make the sticky rice in instant pot, you will never go back to the traditional bamboo steamer method.
Rinse 1 cup sticky rice with water 2-3 times until the water runs clear. Drain the rice and add it to the instant pot.
Add 1 and ¼ cups of water.
Note – You can replace water with an equal amount of vegetable or chicken broth.
Close the lid of the pot and set the valve to the sealing position.
Press PRESSURE COOK and set the timer to 4 min on high pressure. It will take 10-12 minutes for the pressure to build inside the pot and the timer to start.
Once the timer goes off, let the pressure release naturally for 10 mins. Release the remaining pressure manually by moving the valve to the venting position. Use a kitchen cloth to move the valve to avoid steam burn.
Once the pressure is released, open the lid of the pot and fluff the rice gently using a fork.
Measurements are crucial to making perfectly textured rice. Measure the rice and water correctly for the best result.
