Add the rice to a bowl and then add enough cold water to cover the rice. Rinse it several times until the water becomes clear. Next, drain the rice!
Although not necessary, you may soak the rice in water for 10-15 minutes and then rinse until the water becomes clear. This will give the rice extra grain length.
Add rinsed and drained rice to the Instant Pot and pour in the water. You will need 1 ¼ cups of water for every 1 cup of rinsed rice. If you soaked the rice, you will need only 1 cup of water!
Stir in the salt and the oil. Although not required, I like to add oil to mine because it will help the grains not clump together!
Lock the lid, turn the valve to sealing, and cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. This is for ‘al dente’ rice! Add 1 minute more if you prefer yours super tender. Depending on your model, you may have to either use the manual function or press the rice button and adjust the time manually. It will take around 6 minutes for the pressure cooker to come to pressure.
When the cooking time comes to an end, wait for 5 minutes and then do a quick release. Then fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
