Tip: When I first started making gravy years ago, I used a mesh strainer to take out the lumps. It works perfectly. Pour your gravy into the large strainer and swirl around with a spoon.  (none will be the wiser)

Do you have to  rinse Jasmine Rice?

Rinsing your rice before you cook it will wash away some of the starch on the outside of the grains. If you're cooking jasmine rice because you enjoy the way it tastes at your neighborhood Thai or Vietnamese restaurant, you might not want to rinse it.

Manual Pressure Cooking

If you’re using a different kind of rice, select the “Pressure Cook” Smart Program (called “Manual or Pressure Cook”). You’ll need to adjust the cook time depending on the Rice you use. Jasmine Rice cooks perfectly in the instant pot.

  • Basmati (white) rice: 4-8 minutes

  • Jasmine rice: 3-5 minutes

  • Brown rice (long/short): 22-28 minutes

  • Wild rice mix: 25-30 minutes
