This foolproof method takes just minutes to cook and makes the fluffiest rice imaginable. You’ll never want to make it on the stovetop and rice cooker again.

Easy and Versatile Rice Dish

One of the best things about rice recipes is how versatile they are. And Jasmine rice is one of my favorite types of rice to cook because it has a light, delicate flavor that pairs well with many dishes.

It is also a type of rice that can be used in both sweet and savory recipes. It works well in stir-fry and rice pudding and reheats well, making it a great option for meal prep.

We used to cook our rice in a pot on the stove or rice cooker, but ever since we got an Instant Pot, I have been using it to make all our rice dishes.

It’s much easier and faster, and the results are always perfect. If you’re new to cooking with an Instant Pot, don’t worry. This recipe is easy to follow, and even the most beginner cook can easily make it.
