You don't need a fancy, expensive rice cooker to make the perfect sticky rice - just like your favorite takeout place serves. You just need an instant pot. Oh, and read the directions carefully. :)
Servings - 4 servings
- 1 cup jasmine rice
- 1 cup hot water
- Pinch of salt
Rinse the rice in a colander with cold/lukewarm water. Rinse until the water runs clear under the colander. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
Transfer the rinsed (and wet) rice to the base on the Instant Pot insert. Add the hot water and put the lid on.
Set to Sealing.
Cook on Manual Mode, High Pressure for 7 minutes.
Let naturally release for 10 minutes, then release the steam valve and let remaining pressure release.
Remove insert and serve Instant Pot Sticky Rice as side dish or base for your meal.
