How to cook white rice in the instant pot!  This recipe makes the perfect sticky rice!


  • 2 cups uncooked white rice
  • 2 1/2 cups water*

*This quantity of water works well for sticky rice. Use 2 1/4 cup for casseroles or curries.


  1. Rinse your uncooked rice with water for a couple of minutes to remove the starch.
  2. To your Instant Pot, add your two cups of rinsed, uncooked rice and 2 ½ cups of water.
  3. Secure the lid and select the manual button to choose 10 minutes. Then select the pressure button to change to low pressure.
  4. After the 10 minutes, allow the pressure to naturally release for another 10 minutes. Then open the lid and serve or use in a recipe such as California rolls.
