Sweet and Salty Instant Pot Coconut Rice
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Instant Pot
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 1.5 cups jasmine rice, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (14 oz.) can full-fat coconut milk
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1.5 tsp. salt
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  1. Thoroughly wash and drain the jasmine rice- this step is critical!
  2. In your Instant Pot, add the 1.5 cups rice, coconut milk, sugar, and salt.
  3. Refill the 14 oz. can with water, (or you can measure out 1¾ cup) and add that to the Instant Pot.
  4. Stir, then secure the lid and seal the vent.
  5. Cook this for 12 minutes on "manual". When the time is up, wait 10 more minutes with the lid sealed, (this is a "natural release", and the "keep warm" time on the Instant Pot will count the 10 minutes for you).
  6. After waiting 10 minutes, open the lid away from you and release the rest of the steam.
  7. Fluff the rice with a fork, and stir in the coconut shreds.
