Instant Pot Coconut Rice recipe - a quick and easy rice side dish from the pressure cooker.


  • 2 cups jasmine rice (or long grain white rice)
  • ½ teaspoon fine sea salt (or table salt)
  • 13.5-ounce can Coconut Milk
  • 1 cup water


  1. Everything in the pot: Add the rice to an Instant Pot or other pressure cooker, sprinkle with the salt, then stir in the coconut milk and the water. (The coconut cream may be thick - keep stirring until it is mostly broken up.)
  2. Pressure cook for 4 minutes, with a 10 minute natural release: Lock the lid and pressure cook on high pressure for 4 minutes. (Use Manual, Pressure Cook, or Pressure Cook - Custom mode in an Instant Pot). Let the pressure come down for 10 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure in the pot. Fluff the rice with a fork, serve, and enjoy!


Make sure to use coconut milk, not sweetened Cream of Coconut, which is for Pina Coladas.
