Instant Pot Brown Basmati/Texmati

  • 1 cup brown basmati rice, or brown Texmati rice
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  1. If your rice needs to be washed, do so.
  2. Add the rice, water, and salt to the Instant Pot.
  3. Put lid on, and ensure that it is set to “seal”.
  4. Set Instant Pot to high pressure, for 22 minutes.
  5. Leave the lid on when the pot beeps, and let sit, with the lid on for another 10 minutes (natural pressure release).
  6. At the end of 10 minutes, release the pressure valve completely.
  7. Remove lid, and fluff the rice with a fork.

Brown Rice: quick and easy

Rice tastes much better this way, and it’s quicker than simmering it in less water, in a covered pot.  We use parboiled brown.

  • Fill a medium pot 3/4 full of water.
  • Add 1/4 cup of rice per person.
  • Bring to a rolling boil.
  • Turn heat down till it is boiling gently, then leave lid off and boil for 15 – 20 minutes.
  • Drain the excess water — I use a seive — and season with salt, pepper, and butter.
