Someone literally commented that they picked my youtube video because there was an Asian girl on the thumbnail .
But honestly , let's be real .
No one does rice like Asians do .
So let me teach you how to make perfect instant pot rice .
I'm pretty confident here that literally no Japanese person would eat long grain white rice .
At least in Japan .
I make my short grain white rice in my Japanese rice cooker most Asian thing ever .
But I'd say that most people in the US use either long grain white rice , bus money rice or jasmine rice .
This method will work for all three of those .
The same , this method will not work the same for brown rice , short grain rice or medium grain rice in my last video where I'm literally wearing the same outfit .
I got a lot of the same comments .
So I'm gonna go through all of those answer all your questions on how to make the rice today .
We're making long grain white rice in my instant pot duo plus and my instant pot duo original .
I'm doing two instant pots .
So I'm measuring one cup of rice for one and three cups of rice for the other .
Do you want to know the secret to getting great engagement on a youtube video ?
Just don't wash your rice and people could not be more divided on this for me .
I always wash my Japanese rice , my wild rice , my brown rice .
It just never really occurred to me to wash my long green white rice just because that's what it sells on the package .
However youtube came after me and they were not happy John Lennon writes , she did not wash the rice before cooking it .
What the actual is this guys ?
Because I don't want more engagement today .
I guess I'm going to wash it .
I have sold hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of these rice washing baskets .
You need to get one first instant pot , gets one cup of rice washed three cups in here .
And though rinsing the rice does not change the amount of water that you need all the time .
Next is the water ratio for every one cup of rice .
I like to add one and a quarter cup of water .
So the ratio is 1 to 1.25 .
Give it a shake to even distribute the ratio for three cups of rice is the same 1 to 1.25 .
So I'm adding three and three quarters of a cup of water to my three cups of rice .
Of course , you can add chicken broth beef , broth , boon whatever you want for more flavor .
Just a dash of salt and shake .
And now we cook .
Now , this is super important before you cook .
You need to ensure that your ceiling knob is in the ceiling position .
If it is over here in the venting position , all the water is going to evaporate out of this hole and then your rice will burn .
If you have one of these models that has the updated lid , then this is already done for you .
It's default to the ceiling .
Now , if you're new to instant pot cooking , this rice button is a preset .
It goes to 12 minutes on low pressure , which you can use .
But I prefer to just use a manual setting to cook instant part rice .
Press the manual button right here and adjust the time .
My try entry method is three minutes on high pressure .
The other thing you need to remember is to make sure that this keep warm button is on before you start pressure cooking .
Otherwise it will not do the natural pressure release .
If your instant pot doesn't have a manual button , it probably is one of the updated ones .
And it says pressure cook manual and pressure cook are the same thing in recipes and then you'll adjust your time .
Now the keyboard is on .
And this one I don't like because you actually have to press start whether you have one cup of rice or three cups of rice , the time stays the same your instant pot will stay on .
And that just tells you that the instant pot has registered the time that you asked for and it's going to warm up a little bit of steam or sputtering coming out of your lid is totally normal while it's building pressure .
Once your instant pot has come to pressure , your display will counting down from the number of minutes that you said .
So it will start counting down from three .
At that point , your instant pot should be completely pressurized and there should be no steam or sputtering coming out of the lid .
Once your instant pot has finished the three minute pressure cook cycle , it will say L 000 .
The L stands for lapsed time at this point .
The instant pot will start counting up telling you the number of minutes it has been naturally releasing the pressure .
If you forgot to put the keep warm button on , then your instant pot will not say it will just turn off .
Our rice is done .
Pressure cooking .
And now we're going to check it out .
If your instant pot still has the pin up like this , just go ahead and release the rest of the pressure .
So now we're going to fluff up our rice .
So I thought I was recording and I wasn't , but this is the one cup of rice .
It's perfect .
And then this is three cups of rice with three and three quarters cup of water .
See no sticking perfectly .
Fluffy and you want to fluff it up like this before you serve it .
Always , we've got perfectly cooked rice here steamy .
If you try out this method and it still is a little too hard for you , then you can pressure cook for 4 to 5 minutes or you can add an additional quarter cup of water .
Here's a quick warning .
If you leave your instant pot rice in the instant pot and keep warm for a long extended period of time .
It can get sticky , it can burn , it can stick to the rest of your pot .
So be careful .
I find that rice really doesn't store super well because it dries out in the fridge pretty quickly .
But what I really like to do with my leftover instant pot rice is to make rice pudding .
I have a super popular instant pot rice pudding recipe and you can just rehydrate this rice with a little bit of water to make it nice and loose and then just follow the directions from my video or the recipe from my website .
If you test out this method and you still think it needs to be a little bit softer .
Just add an additional five minutes to the natural pressure release or you can increase the pressure cooked time to four or five minutes .
