Instant Pot Coconut Rice

Several months ago I posted a recipe for Instant Pot Coconut Curry Rice and it was a huge hit and also one of my personal favorite recipes. As much as I love the curry in there it is a spice that doesn’t go with everything. I ended up creating just a plain coconut rice recipe and thought it was about time that I shared it with you all.

It is similar to the curry recipe and the best part is that it only takes minutes! I don’t even know how I cooked rice before owning an instant pot! It seriously turns out perfect every single time.

If you don’t have an instant pot I really can’t recommend one enough. Amazon has sales ALL the time so keep an eye on it and grab one next time they drop the price. I promise it is SO worth it.

This rice is great with basically everything. I especially love to serve it with my Slow-Roasted Curry Salmon and my Chicken Stir-fry.

Enjoy!

  1. I followed this recipe exactly to the “T” , doubled the recipe because I wanted to make a larger batch…but the rice came out very runny, almost like a thick oatmeal consistency. What size cans of coconut milk did you use? Mine were 13.5 oz cans.

  2. Hey! I use the 13.5 oz cans. I am not sure what would cause that. I have never doubled it so wondering if that impacts it. My other thought was the coconut milk itself. Was it runny? You want the fat to be solid on top of the can.
