This recipe may not be appealing to some people, but believe you me, it is one of my favourites. You probably might have noticed that there are several methods of cooking coconut rice. Each method with its own lists of ingredients, the ratio of water to rice and duration of cooking the rice. Well, each method depends on the type of rice available for cooking or the accompanying recipe or ingredient lists. There is no doubt that most of these methods and recipes do turn out yummy batches of delicious meals. Personally, I am not the picky type, in as much as the rice cooked well. However, this particular recipe is my personal recipe and I am fascinated by the fact that using an instant pot for its preparation turned out to be a great decision.
The entire processes leading to the finished yummy meal weren't tedious at all. And I have no doubts that once you try out this recipe, you will never turn back. I love my instant pot so dearly not just because it presents me with a perfect pot of rice each time I use it, but simply because it quickly cooks up the rice whenever I want to make a quick one. I can also cook a really big batch of rice so I can have it in the fridge to warm up when needed.
This is the first time I am cooking coconut rice with an instant pot and I am happy that it didn't disappoint me at all. So, it is my pleasure for me to share this special instant pot Coconut rice recipe of mine with you in case you are searching for a reliable method of cooking coconut rice with an instant pot. Please, my dear, look no further, this recipe is just for you. Honestly, my favourite part of this recipe is the fact that it's cooked in the instant pot, and not cooked on the cooker. What this entails is that I throw in all the ingredients into the instant pot, secure the lid and let it cook for 4 minutes. But my best practice for cooking rice in an instant pot is to first parboil the rice for 2 minutes using the pressure cooker function, after which I thoroughly wash the rice before finally cooking it again for another 2 minutes.
