Pressure Cooker Coconut Rice with Fresh Herbs

When we think of perfectly cooked rice, we usually think of fluffy, tender, individual grains of rice. In the typical rice recipe, sticky, gummy rice is to be avoided at all costs.  Unless of course, you’re intentionally trying to make sticky rice, a staple food in northern Thailand. Now,  while I am definitely not from Thailand, I do appreciate cuisine from all around the world. And this pressure cooker coconut rice is reflective of that.

Serve with Something Saucy!

While the texture of our pressure cooker coconut rice shares some characteristics with sticky rice, it is not at all a Thai sticky rice recipe. Thai sticky rice is made with sweet rice and water, while our recipe combines jasmine rice with coconut milk and fresh herbs. However, like Thai sticky rice, this coconut rice yields a slightly sticky rice that pairs well with saucy dishes like our Instant Pot Country Ribs with Sweet Spicy Red Curry Sauce, or our Instant Pot Curry with Chickpeas, Tomatoes & Spinach.

Mint in a savory dish?

While you may think of spearmint gum, mint chocolate chip ice-cream, and other sweet treats when we hear the word “mint”, it’s actually a versatile herb that works well in both sweet and savory dishes. It pairs perfectly with the other flavors of this dish. If cooking savory dishes with mint is new to you, trust us, it works. Maybe give this Spring Pea and Mint Risotto a try!

 

The Process

Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for about 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure.

Meanwhile, take a few leaves of mint and basil…

Then, use a fork to fluff rice. (This rice recipe will be both sticky and clumpy, not individual grains – perfect for serving with something with lots of liquid to soak it up.)
