How to Cook Rice in Electric Pressure Cooker?
There is a reason, Rice is called the staple food in India, for no matter what you cook and have, any meal (at least once in a day) is just incomplete without a little serving of rice. So there you go, I just gave you one very significant reason as to why you should know how to cook rice.
Cooking rice is such an easy work but then with technology around there has to be something done to make your cooking easier and that is exactly where the Electric Pressure Cookers comes in (to make your easy work easier). Cooking rice in a pressure cooker, electric pressure cooker or in any vessel is not a big task but there are differences in the effort a man has to put in during the cooking process.
When compared to the different appliances used to cook rice the electric pressure cooker requires the least amount of effort for the appliance is all about saving time and energy while having a perfectly cooked rice made ready for you.
What to do?
Step 1: Rinse the rice with water. (For brown rice or basmati rice thorough rinsing is not required.)
Step 2: Add rice, water and salt to the inner pot. (For 1 cup of rice, add 1 + ¼ cup of water)
*Geek Robocook comes with an inner pot with measurements.
Step 3: Close the lid to its locked position.
* Geek Robocook comes with a lid that has a ‘lock and unlock’ mechanism.
Step 4: Check if the lid is rightly sealed.
Step 5: Select the rice preset menu option on the cooker or set the temperature and time using the manual settings. (Preferred time and temperature is 20 to 18 minutes)
*Geek Robocook is a digital pressure cooker that lets you set time and keep track of it for every food that you cook.
Step 6: Choose manual pressure release option.
*Geek Robocook has both automatic pressure and manual release options.
Step 7: Open the lid, fluff the rice with a scooper to check if it is ready and then serve hot.
What not to do in Electric Pressure Cooker?
Do not overfill: It is always better to keep an eye on the ‘No liquid/less liquid’ (will give you half cooked or burnt rice) or ‘Too much liquid’ (over cooked rice and pressure release issues that could be dangerous) in the instant pot before you begin to cook the rice.
Do not use pot to rinse rice: Keep the inner pot dry always. Rinse rice in another vessel, drain the water and then add the rice to the inner pot.
Do not go for manual pressure release immediately after the cooking is done: The electric cooker is safe to open only when the cooking is done and is in Keep Warm mode, when the pressure release has reduced and when the lid opens smooth.
